Basic with muddled aromatics. Had the expected flavors but indistinct and flabby.

Taste test! 2015 is bone standard. Much more New Zealand than the 2014. Lacks the lushness that sets the 2014 apart.

Taste test! Light fruit bomb -- lush and fragrant but doesn't get overbearing. Outshines the 2015 easily.

Good value, easy to drink, hints of lime . Slight acidity with a dry finish.

Approachable, fruity and easy to drink on its own or with food.

V14. Really , really good for the price. Nice grapefruit zest bouquet. Crisp pear and Meyer lemon fruit , with a slight grassy finish. All the right touches.
