Natalie's Score: 90/100
Grassy, herbal and terrifically refreshing! Vibrant tropical fruit and lime citrus on the nose of this mouth-watering New Zealand white wine made from Sauvignon blanc grapes. Pair with shellfish.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: Thai green curry fish, apple stuffed chicken breast, steamed mussels, herbed couscous salad.

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon-green colour with all kinds of aromas with this generous bouquet. Lemon, lime, green apple, white, lanolin, grapefruit, grass, touch of gooseberries, wet stone, kiwi and some touches of firm starfruit. In the mouth this really comes alive as many of the aromas change on the tongue. The palate shows elements of: wet grass, grapefruit, white pepper, grapefruit, touch of tangerine, and kiwi. High acidity with medium minus body, and finish. Super zesty and fruity. Pair with herbed goat cheese salad and chicken. 90 points tasted November 2017
|Brittany Gregory rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Crisp and refreshing. Bright tropical notes with hints of lime, green apple, soft gooseberries and fresh acidity. Long, dry finish with some mineral notes. Perfect match for white fish, oysters, summer salads or cold pasta salads on a hot summer day.
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A mineral Sauvignon Blanc with herbal notes and aromas of lychee, stone fruit, lime, and a touch of salt. It has flavours of ripe peach, lychee and lime. It has crisp acidity, a certain fullness on the palate, and a nice long finish.
Pair with seafood, goat cheese salad, or with grilled white fish.
Tasted November 2017.
