Packs an enormous amount of zingy, lively character into a beautifully focused, racy frame, offering lime, mineral passion fruit and a crunch of celery, all mingling with zesty pineapple as the finish lingers. Drink now.

Bright, pale lemon-yellow color. Musky aromas of grapefruit and wild mint, with a suggestion of resiny oak. Then dense, spicy and wild on the palate, with fairly full but brisk flavors of grapefruit pith, smoke and truffley earth. This intriguing, soil-driven wine finishes with a refreshing bitter edge.

Distinctive aromas of gooseberry and passion fruit dominate with hints of lime and tropical fruits. Layers of tropical fruit flavors are enhanced by the well-balanced, refreshing, zingy acid and the lingering, seductive finish.

Light green in colour, passionfruit and citrus fruits fill the nose complimented by complexing flint. The palate is filled with tight passionfruit, melon and lemon fruit. This is all kept in check by the distinctive and chalky Marlborough acidity.

Much like the 2004, this is an aggressively herbal style of Sauvignon that some consumers will love. Pungent, sweaty scents on the nose are followed by green, herbal notes and lashings of passion fruit. Slightly oily in texture, yet the wine still ends on a fresh, zesty note.

Bright and jazzy, with a harmonious feel to the lime, pineapple and floral aromas and flavors, lingering on the citrusy finish. The best of three bottles tasted. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Marlborough is situated at the Northern end of the South Island of New Zealand. The climate is warm and dry with cool night temperatures that contribute to the zingy freshness the wines exhibit.
