Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Classically Marlborough, this wine immediately shows a mixture of herbaceous capsicum, passion fruit and ripe tropical fruit aromas. It has a very refreshing multi layered palate. These flavours and aromas leave a fresh lingering finish on the palate making it a full satisfying wine with balanced acidity."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Classically expressed and intensely flavoured, it is beautifully fragrant on the nose showing passionfruit, nectarine, crunch apple and lime zest characters. The palate is juicy and concentrated, and displays excellent varietal purity and fine texture, wonderfully structured by bright acidity. A highly enjoyable sauvignon. At its best: now to 2019."


93/100 Huon Hooke (2016 Vintage)
“Very light straw-green colour, with a bright passionfruit, tropical aroma, and an intense palate showing very good fruit concentration, drive and length. Exemplary Marlborough sauvignon, limes and lemons, clean and vibrant, zesty and penetrating, with a very long citrusy aftertaste.”


4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is full, up-front and accessible with passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas lifted by ethereal fresh and dark herb notes. The aromatics unveil a thirst-quenching, steely and minerally core with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is finely concentrated and tightly bound with flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits entwined with fresh herbs and steely mineral notes. The mouthfeel has plenty of energy and acid brightness, and the wine flows along a smooth line, leading to a dry, chalky, minerally finish. This is a taut and concentrated, refreshingly steely Sauvignon Blanc with intense passionfruit, tropical fruit, herb and mineral flavours. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from multiple sites in the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 1.06 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees."
