"The result of a collaboration between Noble One producer Darren De Bortoli and renowned NZ winemaker Brent Marris, this is a classic example of Marlborough sauvignon. Deliciously inviting and full of zing."
Jeff Collerson, Daily Telegraph, (AUG/2012)
"Even though the first thing I notice about the wine is the fruit flavours of gooseberries and passionfruit, the wine is much more than that. In fact the profile is not overt at all, its more introverted and thoughtful than normal for this variety. It is the type of wine that doesn't look good too cold or too hot but if served just right will surprise the senses. In the end a little chalkiness added a bit of interest and enjoyment which would make it brilliant to drink as the weather warms up a bit."
