The nose is full of gooseberry and tropical fruit. However, in the mouth there is a punch of green apple supported by the tropical fruit. With passion fruit coming through in particular though you can also detect a hint of grapefruit. The wine is very acidic and remains crisp from start to finish, possibly a little too much so.

Bright and juicy, with lively acidity against nectarine and lime flavors that persist into the zingy finish. Drink now.

This workhorse NZ Savvy delivers just what you'd expect: an initial blast of pungent herbal and passion fruit scents, followed by bright tropical fruit on the palate and a crisp, clean finish. Good value.

Musky aromas of smoke and herbs, with a light vegetal aspect. Round, ripe and easygoing, with apple and pear flavors complicated by varietal vegetal notes. Soft and approachable sauvignon.

There's simple elegance in the grape-based aroma of fresh lime, then the wine is a clean gloss on melon and gooseberry flavor. It finishes tart, a spritz of lime zest for fatty tuna sashimi.

Polished style, light and pretty, with citrus and tropical fruit notes that ride nicely over the top. Drink now.

Basic, straightforward NZ Sauvignon Blanc, with hints of asparagus and green pepper enlivening pink grapefruit flavors. Soft and creamy in the mouth, yet clean and crisp on the finish.

Distinctively Marlborough, bursting with passion fruit, ripe gooseberry and hints of herbaceous nuances. A well-balanced, fresh, invigorating palate with a crisp, zesty finish.
