    March 5, 2014 - Light, simple, watery, uneventful. Drinkable, but lacks the traditional verve of NZ SB.

    February 10, 2014 - 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).

    May 12, 2013 - 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

    December 26, 2012 - Very solid sav blanc. Very crisp with notes of pear, apple and apricot. A perfect compliment to a heavy pasta Alfredo.
