Tasting Notes

Wonderfully refreshing and persistent with great length and depth. Lively lemon and lime aromas with elegant floral notes in the background are followed by an abundance of limes and tropical citrus fruit on the palate. On the finish, a mineral character intermingled with smoky, spicy notes gives further definition and complexity. This gorgeous wine is one of the finest whites of the vintage and while it will be delicious young it will also age well over the next 5 to 1n/a years. Drink 2n/a13 - 2n/a19.

Reviews & Scores

Very lively white with wonderful pineapple, honey and lemons on the nose and palate. Great finish with such intensity. Mineral, white pepper, and tropical fruit. Complex aftertaste of spices, pie crust, and lemon meringue. Fab. 66% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Semillon, and 22% Muscadelle. Production about 1,500 cases, or so.

Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
