    July 17, 2019 - Recent Costco buy @ $10. Since I like to keep my average cost for wine to a bit under $40, and as you can see from my reviews I like my expensive wine, I have to be brutal in finding third party buys, auctions, store sales, and, alas, the occasional cheapo bottle of wine. PnP. Light nose of tart citrus. Grapefruit dominates on the palate with perhaps a bit of lychee, wet stones, and oyster shells backed by bracing acidity, which is what makes this wine work, IMO. Great as a summer sipper or with fish, salads and white meat chicken. This is what corporate winemaking should be: good quality, reliable from bottle to bottle and vintage to vintage and reasonably priced. It's no Peter Michael Apres Midi, but at 1/8 the price, it doesn't have to be. Drink sooner than later. Inaugural member of the cheapo wine hall of fame.

    June 14, 2019 - Appears to be loosing some of it zest, more mineral less tropical character than previous bottles.

    March 17, 2019 - Grapefruit juice with alcohol. Over rated. Though would be fine with light seafood or salads on a warm day. We think there is better SB available at this price point.

    February 5, 2019 - Refreshing, gooseberry and grapefruit. Nice example of NZ SB. Went well with Greek salad.
