2019 Squitchy Lane Estate Sauvignon Blanc
A bright green-gold, this smells of exotic passionfruit and guava complemented by some vanilla and toast from well-handled and well-integrated oak. Textual, grippy, balanced and long, this is an absolutely delicious example of cool-climate, barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc. 96 points, Philip Rich, 2024 Halliday Wine Companion.


2019 Squitchy Lane Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
“A medium, bright crimson red. Not a big wine, this is both elegant and concentrated. Dark plums, blackberries, blackcurrant leaf, star anise and some cedar from impeccably handled oak lead onto the medium-bodied palate, which has good depth before finishing with perfectly handled persistant tannins.” 96 points, Philip Rich, 2024 Halliday Wine Companion


2019 The Key Single Vineyard Chardonnay
“A bright, lemoy green-goldhue. Opens with ripe nectarine, a little white peach and some jasmine. Even better on the palate, which is refined with a little grip giving the wine structure on the long, satisfying finish.” 94 points, Philip Rich, 2024 Halliday Wine Companion
