91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"It is generously fruited and beautifully inviting on the nose showing Gala apple, nectarine, rockmelon and lemongrass characters, leading to a succulent palate that is richly flavoured and vibrant. The wine offers youthful charm and brisk acidity, finishing long and delightfully refreshing. At its best: now to 2020."

4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is very fresh and elegantly presented with pungent passionfruit aromas melded with fresh herbs, some cut grass and nettle notes, and chalky mineral elements. The aromatics build in intensity and penetration with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright, lively flavours of fresh passionfruit and gooseberries along with fresh herbs and nuances of cut grass and nettles. The fruit has good intensity. The palate has fine, dry phenolic texture along with crisp, refreshing, mouthwatering acidity. The wine flows positively to an elegant, lingering finish of gooseberries and herbs. This is a refreshing, lively and bright passionfruity and gooseberry flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with herb and cut grass notes on a fine-textured palate. Serve with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from 50% ‘O’Dwyers Farm’, 30% ‘Long Lane Vineyard’ and 20% ‘Starborough Terrace’, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc."

Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"This label typically offers good value. Estate-grown, the 2017 vintage is from two vineyards in the Awatere Valley and a third site in the Wairau Valley. Mouthfilling, it has fresh, vibrant melon/lime flavours, in a clearly herbaceous style with a crisp, dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish."
