Wow, what a stunner! A profusion of lime and lemongrass mingles with bright nuances of grapefruit and chives. Even though this lovely New Zealand white wine is laser-focused in its crisp cleanness, there's also depth and richness here. Perfect for such a wide range of dishes from fresh seafood to herbed chicken. Lip-smacking delicious!

Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This classic expression of NZ Marlborough Sauv Blanc is a pale straw yellow with greenish hue. Passionfruit, gooseberry and lime leap out of the glass and wake up your senses. Palate echoes the nose, with even brighter lime. A very crisp, mouth-watering acidity and long citrus finish complete the picture. Try with Chicken Alfredo or smoked salmon for an explosion of flavours in your mouth.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A vibrant refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Gorgeous aromas and flavors of grapefruit and citrus with a very balanced acidity. Serve with a variety of seafood or grilled vegetables. One of my favorites is to serve this wine with a crisp salad with an olive oil and balsamic dressing.
This zesty New Zealand white wine won silver Medal at the 2013 New Zealand Easter Show Wine Awards. - Community Wine Reviews
