4 Stars Michael Cooper
A dryish Sauvignon Blanc, with a freshly aromatic, intensely varietal bouquet. Showing good vigour and intensity, with tropical-fruit and green-capsicum flavours, fresh and tangy.


Neil Hodgson, The Nelson Mail
 
This Sauvignon Blanc has a range of flavours and textures that are immediately enticing, with a rounded palate weight and bursting with green capsicum flavours wrapped around flinty acidity - it is a delicious wine!

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting healthy canopy growth.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
