Pale lemon with aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with floral notes. On the palate, this barrel aged SB shows flavors of grapefruit, green apple and pear fruit with some grassy tones, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending creamy with fruit, herbal, floral, grassy and mineral notes. Much better than ‘17!

Aromas of tropical and citrus fruits very typical New Zealand SB. On the palate melon and big grapefruit flavors, overly fruity, with bits of lemon citrus zest, vivid acidity, ok balance on medium finish. Ok, but nothing special, a bit pricey at big box store for quality, better ones out there. Tasting Sample.

Less of what makes Marlborough Sauv Blanc my favorite than White Haven, Kim Crawford or Oyster Bay. Garlic and passion fruit bouquet I can't see paying extra for this wine.

Sour gooseberry, passionfruit, elderflower, blackcurrant bud, freshly cut grass, basil and no oak. Had with Sancerre it felt pretty full throttle but next to other kiwi SBs you'd say it shows some restraint

Citrus notes, but not as fruity as I would like in a Sauvignon Blanc. 2020 vintage with appetizers. Held it’s own and the price was reasonable for weeknight wine.

Would drink again. Nice mineral taste and bite. Not as lemony as cheap yummy.

2019 vintage pairs well with chicken Caesar salad. Citrus notes, crisp and refreshing taste for summer!

Very fresh. Not too sweet though. Small touch of dryness that makes it easy to drink. Love it. But again.
