Very intense on the nose with typical aromas of grass and jalapeno over a core of light orchard fruits. Light-bodied in the mouth but very well-balanced, allowing the mostly herbal tones of the fruit to express themselves in the mouth while the overt fruit takes back seat until it re-emerges on the citrussy finish. 88pts

Pale, bright yellow. Grapefruit and tarragon on the slightly herbal nose. Juicy and quite dry, with classic citrus and herbal sauvignon flavors offering good intensity. Could use more depth but finishes with decent persistence.

This wine shows lifted passionfruit and fresh tropical notes on the nose. These flavours follow through on to the richly structured palate, which has a long crisp finish.
