NEWS FLASH!! MCC SB - 95 points

Tyson Stelzer awards our 2010 MCC sauv blanc 95 points, describing it as the finest Orange wine of any variety he has ever tasted.

As with all new release wines their is some level of trepidation when sending samples to journo's. Will they see what we see, will they understand the style, will they reward the effort? Tyson Stelzer certainly did when he awarded our newly released MCC Sauvignon Blanc 95 points.

His review went beyond our wildest dreams for the product claiming it, "the finest Orange wine of any variety that I have ever tasted." As you would agree from the full review below, our fears were misplaced as this will be a wine that helps shape our future.

"This is not just a sauvignon, not just the best sauvignon that the Orange region has ever produced, not just the finest Orange wine of any variety that I have ever tasted. It has absolutely, fundamentally and forever changed my expectations of what this region can achieve. Cool, calm, textural, mineral, restrained, energetic, pure, driven. The bar has been raised. Welcome to the future". 95 points.

@WinePeloton #epic #cycling was from Orange, over the Blue Mountains, to Penrith on the outskirts of Sydney. Why? Life is short
