Absolute favorite wine. Passion fruit, citrus, tropical fruit and fresh cut grass notes. Perfect with a goat cheese salad, seafood or nothing at all...

Such a great "go to" wine. Crowd pleaser from the new wine drinker to the experienced Somm. Delish summer white!

Tonight I ride a lightly flower'd spice through luxuriant honey-stalk'd moors. Capricious tongues! Yon elixir does entice, quaffing until endrunkedness obscures a horn-mad brain pan lusting for vice.

The 2013 came after a Cloudy Bay and was badly out shined. Seemed flat and washed out in comparison.

2013, Very nice easy to drink fruity and sexy NZ SB. The 2013 vintage was very good and the wine is well balanced and tempting. Straw color, nose full of tropical fruits, pineapple, grape fruit, kiwi, guava and zits of citrus and minerals, body is round and smooth with a pleasant fruity note, balanced by fin light acidity, and a delicious finish. Nothing too sophisticated, but well balanced and fun. My score 88, Drink 2014-2017.

Definition of refreshing!
Nose: Stone fruit, minerals, lemon grass
Notes: same with a hint a pineapple and orange peel.
All around impressive Sav Blanc, can't believe I waited this long to try it.

What is the deal with all the sugar in this wine? It went from serviceable to worse than some $5 bottles at Trader Joe's. I'd go as far to say it's imbalanced.

Lots of cut grass and green tropical fruit. Very clean stone fruit bouquet. Nice flavor and crisp finish.

Popping with citrus flavor and smooth apple tannins, this wine never fails to impress. Paired nicely with paella and herb salad with goat cheese and roasted sunflower seeds.
