Winemaker's Notes

Color: Pale straw.

Bouquet:Lifted fruit aromas of passionfruit, and grapefruit with a background citrus character. Complex mineral and sweet pea notes add interest.

Palate: Generous and supple with abundant tropical fruits. Initial fruit sweetness is balanced by fine acidity to leave a mouth-watering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is bright, lively and distinctive for its apricot, lime and tangerine flavors, which zip nicely through the long, vibrant finish. Drink now."

It was quite pleasant, with a strong bouquet of guava, and a lighter taste of passion fruit and a hint of kiwi and apple. Ordered a few more times and tasted with friends on different occasions. Consistent experience: a refreshing, smooth, and fruity white for the summer. 90.

Very interesting yet classic kiwi marlborough sauvignon blanc. Great tropical fruit notes, back by clean mineral qualities and those pleasant 'green' notes. Love it.
