Natalie's Score: 90/100
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.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
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
|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!
