Wine Spectator 89 "A distinctive accent of fresh fennel adds interest to the grapefruit and lime flavors. Crisp and clean on the finish. Drink now."
"These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age, up to 14 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour."~winery notes
