Reviews and Ratings

Grassy goodness bursts forth from the glass in this New Zealand white made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Clean and crisp that refreshes the palate for many dishes. Lots of mouth-watering acidity for seafood or shellfish. MINE: Textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that finishes with notes of fresh peas, chives and gooseberry. Good depth of flavour and length on the finish. OTHER: Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: A refreshing text book example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Guava,grassy, herbal, catty, tomato leaf and asparagus. Mouthwatering acidity with a long citrus and herbs finish. Pair with seafood, shellfish or a multitude of salads. Serve well chilled. Tasted: May 2015 ). OTHER: (Fermented partly with wild yeasts, with 10% done in barrels) Bright, light yellow. Musky aromas and flavors of lemon-lime, pepper and herbs, plus a subtle suggestion of ripe peach. Plush and broad but with harmonious spicy, grapefruity acidity giving the wine lift and firming the fruit. Rather bracing but fully ripe and nicely tactile, even plush, and long on the aftertaste. A superb, concentrated entry-level wine with a strong impression of extract and no finishing tartness. This wine is a blend of seven vineyards. Drinking window: 2016-2018. Score - 90 (Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, Feb. 2016). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
