Reviews and Ratings

Rick rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very good. Crisp but not as full bodied as e.g. Oyster Bay. In the line of the satisfactory NZ Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas and flavours of citrus fruit and sweet peach intermingle with characteristic grassy notes. A truly solid example of Marlborough Savvy that delivers on all points. Following a lengthy consultation, the Doctors on our panel determined that the best course of action would be to prescribe taking this with food, and recommend crab legs or grilled chicken.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
