Reviews
• Wine Enthusiast: 93 Light and creamy, this is an impressive, small-production wine made from 67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Sémillon grown high up on the producer's estate. Fruity and flinty, it excels in interwoven flavors of peach, melon and lemon, finishing crisp and complex. - Virginie Boone
• Other: 92 The 2018 Calluna Estate Blanc is a two-thirds, one-third blend of sauvignon blanc and sémillon and the wine is excellent. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a very stylish blend of gooseberry, green apple, a touch of beeswax, salty soil tones and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and vibrant, with a good core, bright acids and lovely focus and grip on the long and complex finish. This is very fine juice.
