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. 2 160 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator.

A distinctive and aromatic Marlborough sauvignon blanc delivering bright and lively gooseberry and passionfruit characters with a hint of lime. The palate is well proportioned with refreshing tropical flavours that linger on the seductive finish.

Sourced from Marlborough. A very fine nose with good delineation good minerality with touches of limestone lime and apple. Nice lift and perfume. The palate is finely balanced minerally just lacking a touch of tension but very good length and an attractive kiwi fruit tinged finish. Very fine. Drink now-2010. Tasted January 2008.
