The Giant Periwinkle Wind Scorpion Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Unwooded. A subtle but appealing nose of lime, green apple and just a little blackcurrant. The palate is remarkably concentrated given alcohol of just 12.2% while there’s also zippy acidity before a long and savoury finish. Ideal as a summer aperitif.
Editor’s rating: 89/100.
The Giant Periwinkle Blanc Fumé 2017
From Elim Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented and matured for seven months in two older 500-litre barrels. A reduction-related smoky top note before lime, peach, black currant and fresh herbs. Great fruit concentration, piercing acidity and a very dry finish. A hardcore rendition that needs a year or more in bottle before showing at its best.
