Very light yellow straw in the glass. The nose is fresh as spring with grapefruit, honeysuckle, chalk dust and wet slate. The palate is light and elegant showing lemon curd, grapefruit, sour apple and almonds. The finish is refreshing. Much better than last time I tried it. Now, I mean this in the best way possible, you could carbonate this stuff, sell it as a (unsweetened) soft drink and make a fortune.

Flinty, chalky and tropical on the nose. Loads of grapefruit on the palate with lots of acidity. Good but simple. Left a pleasant aftertaste but not one that I enjoyed with my meal. A summertime, afternoon sipper. Good but not great.

My wife and I were served this wine at a local Italian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised and asked the waiter for the label. I enjoyed the crispness and pleasant fruitiness.

A lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc, this bottling features the classic notes of gooseberry and cut grass on the nose but in a cool, ripe register that also hints at white cranberries with crisp citrus notes. In the mouth this is a textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, zippy with lovely citrus flavors supported by bright acidity in a medium-bodied style, finishing dry with a subtle mineral note that makes this is a natural match for lighter summer fare.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 90 Winemaker Simon Waghorn has been able to maintain this brand's quality even as production has ramped up to 100,000 cases, a remarkable feat. The 2008 features ripe, tropical fruit aromas of guava and pineapple that morph easily into flavors of nectarine and fig; expect some herbal notes to emerge by the time it reaches consumers. It's plump in the mouth, yet finishes with a mouthwatering, clean, crisp Finish. Wine Tasting Notes Light straw, with lemon-lime tones. Vibrant currant-leaf and gooseberry aromas, some pungent herbaceous nuances, and a hint of ripe citrus. A full flavored medium bodied wine, with an abundance of currant and gooseberry flavors, and a clean, lingering finish.
