5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"It is packed with fabulous sauvignon flavours of passionfruit, feijoa, nectarine and rockmelon with an accent of lime zest. The palate delivers excellent concentration and intensity, brilliantly complemented by fine texture and juicy fruit intensity. A delicious offering. At its best: now to 2021."

5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and solidly packed with well-concentrated and deep aromas of pungent passionfruit entwined with tropical fruits, fresh and dark herbs and fragrant floral elements. The aromatics are harmoniously integrated and grow in depth and breadth in the glass. Dry to taste and medium full-bodied, the palate is rich and fulsome with broad, mouthfilling flavours of pungent passionfruit, tropical fruits and dark herbs. The fruit has weight an presence on the palate, forming a rounded, deep heart, with fine, lacy acidity underlining the fruit. The wine flows smoothly to an aromatic, near ethereal finish. This is a rich and mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, tropical fruit and herb flavours with plenty of presence and a smooth-flowing palate. Serve with Mediterranean and Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, Awatere Valley, Dillons Point and Waihopai, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS."
