Reviews and Ratings

Mike Eaton rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Never disappointing. It has everything you nlove about fresh Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and more.It has real gooseberry, kiwi fruit with the classic tropical notes and some nice complexity.
Subscriptions Trialto rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Classic SB from NZ. For those that don't know most of the vines formally made Cloudy Bay - but yet this is $8 cheaper. Really great value
Agatha Szin rated this wine as 90/100
Unsurprisingly this hails from the label of sauvignon pioneers, ex- Cloudy Bay men Ivan Sutherland and James Healy. It’s a powerful, complex example with an emphasis on intense savoury herbaceous notes of oregano and boxwood over ripe melon fruit supported by a zesty line of flint and citrus. Serve a sauvignon like this as an aperitif or with shellfish such as scallops and oysters, asparagus, salads, and tomato based dishes. Source: Jo Burzynska, New Zealand Herald

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
