Subtle gooseberry tones yield to grapefruit, pineapple and herbs on the nose in a rather exuberant rush that ends with a floral top note. Nicely balanced in the mouth with bright acids balanced by a round, juicy core of orange tinged pineapple fruit. This is a touch creamy with an lemony edge to the fruit up front but gains a nice mineral and acid driven snap on the finish with a finale of sea salt and lime tones. 89pts

A domestic SB that can hold its head up among New Zealand bottlings, but has a bit more softness and is less assertive. Beautiful aromas of grass, hay, melon, and citrus, all of which are echoed in the flavors. The finish becomes more herbal than grassy, which makes it linger nicely in the mouth. Honestly, I think if you tasted this blind you'd say NZ Sauvignon Blanc for sure. As the wine opens, though, you get more melon and floral notes that add to the complexity. Very nice effort for this renamed (formerly Fume Blanc) wine.

Heavenly nose, citrus, grass, melon, honeysuckle, even a hint of spearmint! Delicious crisp, balanced acidity, lemon, lime, herbaceous lusciousness...fill my glass!

Vibrant and juicy, with focused citrus notes of Meyer lemon, lime peel and grapefruit. A pleasant herbal grassiness provides an added dimension of freshness, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. -MW
