95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage)
"Pungently aromatic sauvignon blanc with impressively intense passion fruit, red capsicum and nectarine flavours. A smooth textured wine that practically defines Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Deliciously drinkable. Great Value"
5 Stars & 95/100 Gourmet Traveller, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
“The fruit, the whole fruit and nothing but the fruit” is how I would describe this classic expression of Marlborough sauvignon blanc. It relies on good vineyard sites, low-cropping vines and conventional stainless steel fermentation to maximise varietal character. Intense passionfruit, red capsicum, and nectarine flavours with a silken texture and perfect balance of supporting acidity. Great value at this price.
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, August 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is gently full and concentrated with well-packed aromas of pungent passionfruit harmoniously melded with tropical fruits, fresh herbs and mineral nuances. The aromatics open with ethereal detail and grow in presence with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich and lusciously mouthfilling flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits, along with fresh herbs and minerals, forming a rounded and concentrated core. The fruit is underlined by very fine textures and refreshing, lacy acidity, and the wine carries to a long, lingering, concentrated finish with fine grip and depth. This is a mouthfilling and concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit flavours, freshness and presence. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, Dillons Point and Waihopi, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS."
