Wonderful complexity and flavors. Tropical fruit and citrus aromas with mango, lemon and herb notes on the palate. Great acidity throughout and a long, crisp finish. Pair with grilled whitefish. Tasted July 2018.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Light grapefruit, pomelo citrus and hints of light dried grass. Lemon citrus with some stoney minerals. Overall this was dry, lively and refreshing. 91 points - Tasted July 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Aromas of pineapple, lemon, lime, mango and a hint of cooked asparagus. Bright on the palate, acidity is mouthwatering but not over the top and nicely balanced with fresh citrus and tropical flavours. Enjoy with cold shrimp salads, goats cheese, or other fresh summer fare.

Great value, complexity, aromatics and flavours. Fresh, bright, crisp. Pale straw. Mouthwatering acidity. Tangy tropical fruit, green melon, grapefruit, and lime. Medium bodied, well balanced. Pairs well with shrimp ceviche. Tasted 2016 vintage in May 2018. 90 points
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lychee, honeydew, followed by citrus, petrol, and herbal notes. On the palate , it is tart with lemon flavours, honeydew, and white pepper at the finish. Very fresh and crisp! Pair with fried seafood appetizers.

Tasted July 2018
Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is medium-bodied, dry with racy acidity for seafood. Aromas of chives, lemongrass and smoke. Nice and silky on the palate with bright lime, lemon custard and light herbs on the palate. Enjoy it now with a grilled halibut steak.- Community Wine Reviews
