    August 11, 2020 - Good acidity but not much character. Received as a gift but doesn’t compare to Kim Crawford or Oyster Bay from same region.

    April 13, 2020 - Seems to have just the right amount of acidity with flavor of grapefruit and maybe a tiny hint of lemon. You really can’t go wrong with this one.

    September 7, 2019 - This wine is clear with no evidence of faults. It's a medium lemon color. The nose is clean with a pronounced intensity of aroma It's floral and herbaceous with strong notes of grapefruit, grass, and lime zest. The palate is very consistent with the nose. This wine is dry, the acidity is high, body is medium, and the finish is long. Conclusion: This is a very good, borderline outstanding, wine.

    July 28, 2019 - This bottle was not as focused and intense as my previous batch. But overal enjoyable bottle with very good QPR.

    July 25, 2019 - Although exhibiting some of the characteristics of New Zealand SB, this version actually goes much deeper than what I've come across previously. Nose of grapefruit and cut grass follows on the palate along with flavors of lime, green fruit, sea mist, lemon and wet stone. Mineral notes carried throughout with balanced acidity on a medium-full body ending with an enjoyable, lingering finish. Excellent wine with a good QPR. Will buy again.
