Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Settled weather over flowering provided a healthy fruit set, which was then thinned back to desired levels. The ensuing summer was dry with very little rain, resulting in perfectly ripened small berries full of intense flavour and concentration. Thankfully, our harvest was able to proceed during the C-19 lockdown, and an unbroken autumn full of warm days meant each variety was picked at its optimum maturity.
The wine is pale lemon in colour. Heady tropical aromas of passionfruit, pineapple and guava leap out of the glass, along with hints of grapefruit, gooseberry, lemongrass, and elderflower. The palate has a pleasing richness, balanced with fresh zesty minerality that ensures the wine remains elegant yet focussed, with a satisfying, crisp finish."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"This is delightfully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing peach, feijoa, kiwifruit and lemon zest aromas. The palate displays excellent fruit intensity with fine texture and juicy acidity, making it tasty and highly appealing. At its best: now to 2023."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Looking good for the summer of 2019-20, the 2019 vintage is full-bodied and freshly scented, with good intensity of ripely herbaceous flavours, crisp, dry and punchy."
Yvonne Lorkin, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"This is a juicy, lemony lick around the chops for anyone partial to punchy, tropical tastiness in their sauvignon. Made by the team at Pegasus Bay, they’ve captured the Southern love in a classic, passionfruity, punch in the glass. Crisp, uncomplicated, easy to sip sauvignon that’ll please the crowds."
89/100 Cameron Douglas MS, September 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Fleshy, fruity and varietal bouquet of SB – aromas and flavours of peaches and sweet grapefruit, some pineapple and mango, quite floral too with a frangipani suggestion then some classic herbs moments. Fresh, crisp and lush with plenty of acidity and a core of fruit and vibrant texture. Drinking well now and through 2022."
