Such a savoury and juicy New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! Aromas of grapefruit, nettles, dried herbs, chives and a lovely lime lift though the core of refreshment. Medium-bodied. No oak. Pair with seafood, shellfish, vegetarian dishes.

A delightful aromatic sauvignon blanc with intense guava, passionfruit and lemongrass notes. It's light bodied, clean, crisp and pairs well with chicken souvlaki. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is a lovely pale, pale gold in the glass. Classic grassiness on the nose and palate. The nose opens up to hints of tropical fruits and white flowers.It is smooth and silky on the palate. Lots of lemon grass and herbs. There is a touch of bitterness and austerity mid-palate. Finish is long and pleasant. This wine demands your attention throughout! Enjoy with salad, chicken, Greek food.
|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Interesting difference between the 2015 and 2017 with the 2017 showing more tropical fruit, matchstick and rounder acidity with a bit of a burnt edge. Slightly less concentrated thatn the 2015. A great NZ Sauv Blanc choice. I preferred the ++ gooseberry nose of the 2017.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Zesty gooseberry, lemongrass, savoury and refreshing. Pairs well with goats cheese pesto pizza. Tasted 2017 vintage in Nov 2017. 89 poins.
|Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A fairly typical NZ Sauvignon Blanc: Grassy, guava, lemony goodness in a medium-bodied cloak, medium to high acidity and a long lemon tinged guava finish. I'd serve this with linguine a la vongole.

Tropical and gooseberry make for an interesting combination. It's also more off dry than you would come to expect from a Sauvignon Blanc. This one would be difficult to pair with food so I would sip this baby on its own in the summer. If you love Sauv Blanc but you're looking for something different, this one is for you!
