Estate-grown at Tasman, harvested by hand and lees-aged in tanks, the 2014 vintage is mouthfilling, with fresh, incisive tropical-fruit and herbaceous flavours, crisp, dry and lingering.

Neil Hodgson, The Nelson Mail, 12 Sept 2014
Blackenbrook have made the most of the superb fruit harvested for this wine. It is simply bursting with bright summer aromas and flavours of gooseberry, green capsicum and firm juicy crisp apple acidity in the long finish. This is classic sauvignon blanc at its best.
