Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Initially tons of flint on the nose - matchstick. Opens up to traditional New Zealand sauv blanc notes of gooseberry, key lime, pink grapefruit, and background notes of mint. Zesty and vibrant, this one really stimulates both the sense of taste and smell - even tickling my nose as I sip, feeling a little like wasabi. Very fun!
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ripe tropical fruit, mango and kiwi on the nose, with a splash of fresh, leafy grass. Flavours are equally as bright with melon and lemon zest. Mouthwatering-ly juicy. An easy sipper that will complement a variety of foods such as mixed grilled veggies, seafood, goats cheese and other creamy cheeses. Or simply just on its own.
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Classic Marlborough grassy, gooseberry with citrus peel nose. Crisp and refreshing acidity to carry grapefruit, lime and herbs. Juicy finish. Great value while on sale.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A classic example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of lemongrass, fresh green herbs, lemon pith and fresh lime. Light bodied with bright acidity, green fruit and herbaceous notes and a slightly tart finish. Enjoy with fresh green salads with a citrusy vinaigrette.
David Skinner rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light straw pale lemon colour. Lightly fragranced lemon and grassy notes. Lime and lemon flavours with zesty acidity. Medium finish.
