Fresh and grassy lemon and grapefruit aromas with the lightest note of peach. Flavors of melon and lemon continue to the palate where they are met with an herbal note of lemongrass and grassy dried sweet basil, finishing clean and lightly floral.

Delightful peach and ripe green apple aromas with jalapeño and fresh herbs on the nose. This is tart, zesty and refreshing with a bowlful of acidity, juicy lime, grapefruit and golden berry and a wooded, herbal barky note towards the finish that ends on lime zest and pineapple.

Melon on the nose. Fruity in the palate with balancing acidity and a slightly bitter finish,

Tropical fruits on the nose; fruit forward wine with light acidity and a touch of bitterness on a rather long finish.

Their 2012 is a bit bigger than the 2011 with a classic pungent nose of Gardenia bloom and citrus. The color is too light and needs a bit more acid. The fruit comes though nicely but the finish is a bit short. My rating -- 86

Missing the sharp citrus bite, but does have a rich fruit flavor and a crisp, refreshing body. The finish comes up short, but otherwise, a yummy wine!

Mainly lemon and green apples, other citrus on the mid palate. Nice bottle for the price. Not overly grapefruity like alot of other sauvignon blancs from New Zealand.

Nice, fruity bouquet, a little sweet, but fresh
