95 POINTS: A blend of grapes from the Upper Awatere Valley and home block in the Wairau Valley. Appealing sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime zest, lemongrass and a seasoning of tropical fruit/passionfruit character. Good weight and an attractive texture.
92 POINTS: Very attractive, fruity and totally varietal with aromas and flavours of fresh tropical fruits, pink grapefruit, lemon and apple. Sweet hay, wet stone, bell-pepper and peach tea. High acidity, fresh crunchy texture, a core of fruit and lengthy persistent finish. Lots to like and enjoy. Drink now and through 2022.
