Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A crisp Marlborough, NZ Sauv Blanc with lime and gooseberry on the nose. The palate shows citrus lime, gooseberry, vegetal grassy notes and asparagus.. Dry with a long lime finish.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Grassy (wet morning dew grass), herbaceaous, peppery..... Where is the fruit you ask? You'll have to take my word for it and just accept lime zest for that category. This NZ Marlborough Sauv Bl is very typical of its terroir. However, with a bit more body and a crisp clean finish. The acidy is through the ceiling in this wine so becareful pairing. I paired this wine guacamole (made with added lime juice) and tortilla chips and found it quite pleasant.

Wine Nerd Tip: Acidity in a dish often decreases your perception of acidity in wine.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Herbal, grassy, catty, citrus, dill, gooseberry. Points for typicity. Light-bodied. Mouthwatering acidity. Good salad wine.
Tasted: March 2015
This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is all freshly cut grass and green herbal notes. Loads of acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
