Lifted notes of white peach, nectarine and mandarin blossom combine with a complex gun flint aroma and supportive lees character on the nose. The stone fruit character follows through to the palate, where the creamy lees component combine with softer acidity and background minerality to form a textured and layered wine.

Named after the gigantic old gum tree that grows on Jackson’s Homestead vineyard that apparently makes ghostly noises as the temperature cools down and night settles in. Made by Matt Paterson-Green, this sauvignon is hand harvested, whole-bunch-pressed and then fermented in old, French oak barrels which inject a rich, round, smoke-edged note into the wine. It retains classic herb-heavy notes, yet the acidity is dialed down a tweak, the toastiness turned up, the richness rolls across the palate like a tasty tsunami of citrus and it makes me a happy sipper
