    August 13, 2011 - CellarTracker clean-up. We drank this and it was delicious and aromatic. It is best with fish and tomatoes

    June 17, 2010 - Grapefruit, herbs (basil, tarragon, sage) on the nose. In the mouth, grapefruit, tangerine, wet gravel. Grapefruit pith on the lingering finish. This wine has an elegant balance especially for NZ sauvignon blanc.

    March 23, 2010 - Anna likes the nose...it is distinctive...but the palette is all wrong...bright (offensive) white and yellow fruits dominate any sense of craft or terroir...tastes like Welches something or other. Maybe I'm just a corrupted red wine drinker...but, no thank you!

    October 17, 2009 - Some nice citrus, especially grapefruit and lime - although not as much grapefruit as other NZ SB.
