Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The Sauvignon Blanc is planted at our coastal Te Awanga vineyard where the cooling sea breeze and free draining shingle soils give us fantastic quality grapes for making this wine. Citrus characters with gooseberry and green herbs enhanced by a flinty minerality are typical of the Sauvignon Blanc from our coastal Te Awanga vineyard."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"It is fresh and fragrant on the nose showing green rockmelon, grapefruit, lemon peel and sweet basil aromas, followed by a vibrant palate that is zesty and lively. The wine offers lovely fruit intensity and fine texture, brilliantly structured by bright acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2019."
4 Stars & 17.5/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is taut and elegantly concentrated with a core of gooseberries, greengages, green capsicums, fresh herbs, along with a white floral lift, unfolding a some cool-spectrum nettle notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has intense and deep, vibrant and lively flavours of gooseberries, nettles, cut grass, with fresh herbs and white florals. The fruit has sweetness and is enlivened by brisk acidity. The palate possesses a light, dry-textured phenolic line that carries the flavours with good energy, Nuances of lantana emerge as the wine leads to a taut, lingering finish. This is a tight, elegantly concentrated, lively Sauvignon Blanc with cool-spectrum nettle and cut-grass flavours along with gooseberry and herb notes on a fine-textured palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Te Awanga vineyard, WBP and indigenous yeast cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months on fine lees."
