2010 Pinnacle Sauvignon Blanc…a review worth publishing!

James Suckling is an internationally acclaimed wine critic and journalist who posts daily wine ratings, wine reviews, HD wine videos, blogs, wine tasting notes, and comments from around world.

When our 2010 Ross Hill Pinnacle Sauvignon Blanc scored a 94 in James’ book… we thought it was necessary to share this with you!

“Exciting texture with subtle plum and wet stone notes. Tight, minerali undertone and some chewiness. Very complex. Persistent and long. This is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted in a while and stands alongside the Loire's top wines. Grapes grown at around 750 meters.”
