Pure, fresh, delicious wines that speak of the gravel terroir of Marlborough with line, length and purity of fruit across their length with bright, energetic acid lines powering the wines through to the finish. Great value wines that confirm why the Marlborough region is a favourite with wine-lovers across the globe.
A fabulous example of vibrant sauvignon. It is intensely aromatic on the nose displaying passionfruit, mango, lime zest and dill characters, followed by a powerfully expressed palate that is juicy and flavoursome. The wine offers layers of gorgeous flavours, beautifully structured by refreshing acidity: Rating: 93 Points; Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, lighter on rim. The nose is soft, gently aromatic and up-front with gooseberry and tropical fruits entwined with delicate herbal elements and suggestions of yellow capsicums and florals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of juicy gooseberries and tropical fruits are open and accessible. Subtle herbal and floral elements unfold from the heart. The mouthfeel is lively and zesty with bright acidity, and the wine flows along a fine, light, grainy-textured line, the phenolics balanced by the fruit sweetness and fresh acid. The is carried by the mouthwatering acidity to a bracing, lingering finish. This is a bright, crisp, mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours. Rating: 17.5/20.0; Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
