|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A texturally diverse on-lees sauvignon blanc from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
Pale lemon green colour with poignant aromas of dried grass, citrus and steely limestone. Flavours come to life with pineapple, apple, grass, cilantro, dill, asparagus and a variety of crisp, fresh herbal notes. Medium plus body and acidity, followed with a medium finish. Wet rock, pineapple and Asian pear persisting. Dry and delightfully delicious.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A gorgeous expression of all things Sauvignon Blanc. At first swirl, notes of passion fruit and pineapple rise out of the glass, followed by lemon, green apple and sweet pea. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough is full-bodied with vibrant acidity and long, citrus finish. Less than 7,000 cases of this wine have been produced. Pair with shellfish and white fish dishes. Tasted September 2017 with winemaker Simon Fell.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Nose of nettle, cut grass, green bean and herbs; palate is citrusy-lemony and piquant - Boom! No doubt that this is a Marlborough SB. Fruit sourced from the popular regions of Wairau Valley (75%) and Awatere Valley. Match: poached salmon on a bed of fresh peas and asparagus tips with lemon vinaigrette.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Yellow straw colour. This is a nice Sauvignon Blanc that contrasts herbaceous aromas with sweet tropical fruit notes. Medium weight. Tastes of pineapples and bananas with a long herbaceous finish. Score 90. (S.Segard, reviewed Sept. 25, 2017)
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:|
This full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc has a nice complexity. On the nose, there is passion fruit and lychee, as well as mineral notes. The tropical flavours, especially the lychee, follows through on the palate as well as lemon flavours.
Pairs nicely with seafood. Tasted September 2017
