 Tasted by Neecies on 3/5/2014 & rated 85 points: Light, simple, watery, uneventful. Drinkable, but lacks the traditional verve of NZ SB. (431 views)
 Tasted by rmalloy on 2/10/2014 & rated 86 points: I found this to be a decent, but unremarkable New Zealand sauvignon blanc. It was too tart and simple to be interesting on its own (maybe that can be said for all sauvignon blancs?). It did drink well with food (maybe that, too, can be said for all sauvignon blancs). (410 views)
 Tasted by MSheridan on 5/12/2013 & rated 87 points: A Very nice pungent nose of grass, pee and tropical fruit which is initially evident on the palate but goes a bit watery and the finish is sadly a little short
This was better in its youth (612 views)
 Tasted by MSheridan on 12/28/2012 & rated 89 points: Very good: strong nose and lots tropical fruit on the palate
Finish is a little short but excellent qpr (699 views)
