While the classic expression of this famous wine style is about fruit purity and crispness, this wine represents Matt and Sophie's alternative interpretation. The Abstract Sauvignon Blanc is about savoury complexity and seamless texture that they think draws parallels with the best white Bordeaux wines, at a fraction of the price.

Reviews

review Blank Canvas Abstract Sauvignon Blanc 2018Cameron Douglas MS: 96/100 (Outstanding). Immediately complex and enticing bouquet with aromas of the variety with a deep core of savoury complexity, lees and barrel ferment derived scents. Aromas of honeysuckle and grapefruit, some tropical fruit, wild flowers, sage and fresh herbs, hay and silty soil minerality. Fantastic on the palate with textures and flavours of complexity, variety, soil and palate tension - with amazing salty acidity, hold, release and finish. What’s not to like! Best drinking upon purchase and through 2028+.

 

review Blank Canvas Abstract Sauvignon Blanc 2018Bob Campbell, MW: 95/100. Made with 100% wild yeast fermentation in seasoned French oak puncheons followed by maturation in oak for 15 months. The wine retains its capsicum, passionfruit varietal identity that contrasts with nutty, ginger yeast lees character and subtle oyster-shell mineral flavour. A complex wine with a pleasing texture.

review Blank Canvas Abstract Sauvignon Blanc 2018VINOUS - Rebecca Gibb MW: 93/100. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Abstract is a structured and pure expression. Only the free-run juice of these dry-farmed grapes is sent to puncheons, where natural fermentation takes place. Compared with the 2017, it's a little more flinty; high-solids ferment has also imbued an almond meal note to the black currant fruit and grapefruit-like acidity. Ready for drinking, but there's no hurry. I found it also benefited from some aeraction, so maybe pop it in a decanter before you get involved. Drinking window: 2022-2026.

 

Tasting Note

Aromas of flintstone, blackcurrant, passionfruit, grapefruit and a signature salty minerality. The 100% wild yeast fermentation in seasoned French oak puncheons offers savoury attraction and complexity on the palate.
