Natalie's Score: 88/100

Very grassy and herbal with a lime lift on the finish. Clean and crisp with no oak. Great for spinach quiche and vegetarian dishes.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: green curry featuring seafood.

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

A light yellow Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region with signature aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, herbs and that hint of New Zealand vegetal bouquet. The wine has good acidity and a dominant flavour of grapefruit pith which gives it that long grapefruit finish. This wine would pair well with most seafood like deep fried clams, shrimp or grilled salmon on the BBQ.
Intense aromas of passion fruit, green pear, gooseberry and artichoke. Medium bodied, juicy and tangy with hints of lime and grapefruit, buoyantly supported by a mouth-watering acidity. Ends with a crisp and tangy finish. Aromatic & Flavourful. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013
