Intense and complete on the nose with layers of grass, chilies, fresh zesty citrus fruit and dusty guava aromas. Big, rich and intense in the mouth. This is powerful and a bit dense with lots of follow-through. The succulent fruit is intense on the back end with grapefruit, guava and cut grass notes that are rich and fruity but not sweet. Really nice clarity on the palate. 88pts

Winemaker Notes - This wine offers an intense lifted nose of ripe tropical fruits and citrus. The wine is re fined and e legant, d isplaying a fine ly textured palate with flavours o f guava and stone fruit. Wonderfully expressive with a dry re fre shing finish this wine is be st savoured with high-jinks and convivial company.

Wine Spectator ReviewBracing, with a fine beam of intensity to tangy lime, grapefruit and savory mineral flavors. Grass and lead pencil accents extend through the finish. Drink now.Wine Tasting NotesExpressive aromatics of gooseberry and passionfruit epitomise classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and this wine embraces these characters. The wine is refined and elegant with a generous mid and back pallet, finishing with great length.

Winemaker's Notes:

A showstopper New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from a remarkable family owned winery known for their small batch "vine to bottle" approach. With ripe tropical fruits and citrus notes and a finely textured palate with flavors of guava and stone fruit this wine would be great chilled on its own or with shellfish, seafood and chicken.
