​​​​Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc features aromas of passionfruit, guava, elderflower, citrus and black currant.  The palate is a concentrated blend of white peach and tropical fruits with a crisp acidity and mineralogy on the finish."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"A super-charged sauvignon, the powerfully expressed bouquet shows passionfruit, nectarine, rockmelon and lemongrass aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is richly fruited and vibrant at the same time. The wine offers awesome varietal purity and fine texture, leading to a superbly long and delicious finish. At its best: now to 2020."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is fresh with vibrant aromas of tropical fruits, passionfruit and gooseberries, unfolding an array of fresh herbs, snow peas, nettles, cut grass, and floral detail with mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has intense and penetrating flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries, herbs and snow peas, with nettle notes. The fruit forms a tight and well-concentrated core, and flows along a fine-textured line enlivened by brisk, mouthwatering acidity. This has depth and detail. The wine carries to a very long, lingering, softly concentrated finish of passionfruit, herbs and nettles. This is a fresh and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with intensely penetrating and detailed flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits, herbs and cut grass on fine, mouthwatering palate. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS."
4 1/2 Stars Bob Campbell MW, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"A distinctively Awatere Valley style with sweet grass, green capsicum, tomato leaf, mineral and nettle characters. Quite a concentrated wine in a bone-dry style that gives a nod in the direction of Sancerre."
