"Strikingly fresh, toasty-oak aromas here with very attractive grilled hazelnuts, layered into vibrant, rich, tropical-fruit flavors and a smoothly honed palate. Complex and delicious. Drink now. Screw cap."

"The 2018 Oke Sauvignon Blanc was fermented with indigenous yeasts in 320-liter "cigars" of French oak. Notes of struck match and burnt coffee appear on the nose, adding an appealing savory edge to scents of grilled citrus and stone fruit. It's medium-bodied and richly textured on the palate, then finishes a bit dry and woody. My best guess is that this needs another year or so of cellaring before hitting its peak, where it should stay for a few years."
