Winemaker's Notes

This is a dry wine with no hard edges. It has great fruit harmonizing with a small compliment of Semillon to assist with its evolution. Smooth, tropical and marginally herbaceous with bright flavours! Excellent lingering finish with languid ripples of mixed fruits and plum, fig and kiwi. Drink now or cellar and enjoy the evolution to five, six, seven years!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc has a pleasant bouquet not dissimilar to a Marlborough Savvy, offering subtle tropical fruit (passion fruit and guava) underneath the carapace of gooseberry and lime. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry with well-judged acidity, crisp green fruit and a well-judged citrus-driven finish that is focused and true. This is well-crafted and comes strongly recommended. Drink now-2016. "
