At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

The notes I got with this shipment from 4seasons wine club said that it may seem a little heavier than a normal Pinot Grigio but I found the opposite. This is much lighter than a typical Italian pinot grigio and is quite drinkable. I served it with a Thai shrimp, calimari and bay scallops dish and my wife and daughter though it was just right. I...

I think I've become addicted to New Zealand SBs. After getting used to their herbaceousness, fruity delights, crispness, and long finishes, I was a little disappointed in this wine.It was good, don't get me wrong - nice tropical fruit flavors, and a medium finish, but I just couldn't bump it up to 4 stars, especially at the price point. I thin... Read More
