Reviews and Ratings

Peter rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

I loved this wine. It is a departure from the overly citric and sharply acidic Sauvignon Blancs that are typical of NZ.

It is rich and elegant with flavors of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and pear intertwined with delicious minerality. It is well balanced in flavor and acidity. Each vintage is a little different, the 2009 we tried was very good.
Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful tropical fruit and zesty minerality on the soft nose that also follow through on the palate. A Great wine!

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.
