    March 27, 2018 - Really enjoyed this wine. Drank informally with friends and paired with Camembert cheese. Hint of jalapeno, green grapes, grapefruit. Delicious and unique New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc!

    January 2, 2018 - 2018 New Year Holiday in Marlborough / Nelson; 12/31/2017-1/5/2018 (Blenheim / Nelson): Yellow, amber hue. Amazing 12-year-old Marlborough SB! Fresh acidity, lemon, tropical, with some honeysuckle and minerals. different characters from its youth, not too long, but unbelievable solid structure!

    Ap 5/5, Ar 12/15, Palate 16/20, Overall 3+4/10
    Total 90/100

    November 25, 2017 - Enjoyable, but not quite sure 12 years ageing has any added value for this (or any) Marlborough SB. Hint of asparagus, mainly dried fruit (lemon, grapefruit), hay and a spicy note. Would be better if some of the fruity exuberance of youth were still apparent.

    October 9, 2010 - Very citrous, lemon grass entry & middle with a capsicum coda.

    March 31, 2010 - Deifntiely time to drink up. Still had zingy acidity but had lost much of the fruit.
