Black Oystercatcher Secrets of Sauvignon Reviews

The Black Oystercatcher has invited a number of wine experts to share their tasting notes. And the results are unanimous: Sauvignon Blanc here captures the terroir perfectly, with each of the three wines decidedly different.

Master of Wine, Tim Atkins rated the three wines as follows:

Black Oystercatcher Broken Shale Sauvignon Blanc: 93
Black Oystercatcher Iron Ferricrete Sauvignon Blanc: 93
Black Oystercatcher Quartzite Sauvignon Blanc: 91

Sommelier Barry Scholfied says, “Anybody who says Sauvignon Blanc isn’t a good translator of terroir has clearly never been to Elim. What an outstanding collection of wines.”

According to Caroline Rilemma of Caroline’s Fine Wines, “What we all loved was the fact that there is a big difference between the wines, in terms of aroma and flavour profiles. Each of them, in its own way, is excellent but very young and will improve with age – something that emerged after 24 hours. The second time we tasted them the flavours were magnified by the small amount of oxidation.”
