New release, reviews for the 2016 vintage below...
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Certified organic, the 2016 vintage is from young vines, estate-grown in the Wairau Valley. Tank-fermented and lees-aged, it is mouthfilling, fresh and sweet-fruited, with strong passionfruit/lime flavours, balanced acidity and a fully dry, lingering finish. Good value."
90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It is beautifully lifted on the nose displaying grapefruit, mango, lime zest and lemongrass aromas. The palate is vibrant and lively, and delivers attractive fruit intensity backed by perfectly pitched acidity. The wine shows elegance as well as punchy flavours, making it a delightful wine to enjoy. At its best: now to 2019. Certified organic."
4 Stars & 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is softly packed with good depth and elegantly concentrated aromas of fresh, pungent passionfruit harmoniously melded with aromatic, lifted herbs and subtle mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses a finely packed and softly concentrated core of gentle passionfruit flavours along with fresh herbs and nuances of gooseberries. The mouthfeel is lively with balanced, refreshing acidity, and the palate flows with good energy and drive along a fine-textured phenolic threaded line, leading to a light, lingering nuanced finish. This is an elegantly packed Sauvignon Blanc with soft passionfruit flavours, a refreshing mouthfeel and light, lingering finish. Serve as an aperitif, and with salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from Greywacke river stone, and Broadbridge and Wither clay soils, vines 4-8 y.o., fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and dryness. Certified BioGro organic."
