Expert Reviews

Marlborough sauvignon blanc often gets a bad wrap, but it is wines like this that restore your faith in them. Fresh citrus aromas on the nose are enhanced by a zesty palate of tropical fruit. Well balanced and a delight to drink. Rating 95 - Ben Malouf, Daily Telegraph First Vintage (MAR/2016)

Pristine and lively, this appealing sauvignon is filled with grapefruit, feijoa, peach and herbaceous characters. The palate delivers juicy mouthfeel and lovely vibrancy, finishing long and zesty. Intense and flavoursome, without being aggressive. At its best: now to 2017.Wine Orbit – 4 Stars

Bright, light straw yellow colour, pale on the rim. This has a tightly bound, slender nose with cool-spectrum cut grass, nettle, gooseberry and green capsicum aromas. This aromatics are fresh, cutting and show intensity. Dry to taste and lightmedium bodied, the palate is tight and sleek with flavours of grass, nettles, green apples and gooseberries. This has good depth and a positive linearity, with driving, lacy acid cut. Fine, drying phenolic textures emerge and carry the wine to a light, grassy finish. This is a light, refreshingly crisp, cool-spectrum, thirst-quenching Sauvignon Blanc. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 18 months to 2 years. Raymond Chan
