 Tasted by subir on 10/29/2012 & rated 88 points: Tasting Note: A light straw color in the glass, with an expressive bouquet of green apple, pear and a hint of citrus. a light to medium body with very refreshing acidity. A slight bit tangier or citrusy than I remember the last one being. Great grapefruit flavor as it goes down. (2187 views)
 Tasted by Corgoson on 8/11/2012 & rated 86 points: nose: tight nose, wild flower, apricot, pancake batter, honey. Boring nose. Taste: light, fruity, high acidity, pink grapefruit, sour pineapple, lemonade, and subtle honey undertone. Clean taste, dry, and a little bit of orange and floral too. Very fruity juice like (will be very attractive to non-wine drinker; not offensive). Versatile. Simple but well structured. (2480 views)
 Tasted by thirsty_cat on 8/11/2012 & rated 82 points: NOSE: light white grapefruit and lychee, wildflowers and clover honey. A bit tight. TASTE: light, dry, strong acidity. White grapefruit, canned pineapple, lemonade and lemon rind, honey notes. It's like a lemon-honey Halls drop. Quite sour. Slightly floral. Acidity a bit too much for me. Still, non-offensive. Very simple. Chill WELL. (2462 views)

 Tasted by CarlCP on 7/31/2011 & rated 86 points: good crisp nose and taste. citrus, lemon, sharp, but then settling down. Excellent with Seafood. (4015 views)
 Tasted by drdebs on 8/27/2010 & rated 86 points: Good for the price, with lots of grapefruit, bitter lemon, and a bit of lime in the aromas and flavors. A crisp, citrusy NZ SB. (3130 views)
 Tasted by Jason Rzutkiewicz on 7/8/2010: No formal notes but surprisingly good for the price (~$5 a bottle). Refreshing, enjoyable and reminiscent of many New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's I've sampled at double the price... (3476 views)
 Tasted by dan_or on 6/18/2010 & rated 84 points: Two glasses at the Hyatt Regency DFW (3493 views)
 Tasted by THaas on 4/20/2010 & rated 86 points: A slight orange hue in the glass. Mild nose, with a little citrus showing. In the mouth, light and zesty, with good varietal typicity from Marlbourough. There's surely worse out there, and for the price, it's good. (3530 views)
