With the great aromatic intensity typical of a cool-climate wine, this wine shows fresh herb aromas over its fruit. Notes of tomato leaf mingle with fresh green chili (capsicum) and asparagus, all complemented by delicate citrus and mineral traces. On the palate, this is a fresh yet elegant wine with mineral and citrus flavors. The wine has a character that is easy to understand and a pleasure to drink.

"A rich sauvignon, this has ripe notes of white peach balanced by juicy, citrusy orange flavors. The finish is long and refreshing. A sauvignon for scallop curry."
Wine & Spirits
"($17) Pale yellow. Pungent aromas of mint, lemon thyme and lime are accented by a touch of dried ginger. Racy and precise, offering firm citrus fruit flavors and showing a dusty quality. Uncompromising and clean, with strong finishing cut and bite. I like this wine's fat-free character."
