Cat pee nose blows off leaving gooseberry with diesel and grapefruit rind, tartly acidic in a good way, fairly well balanced, fishes grapefruit.

Excellent! Best sauv blanc I've taste thus far. Don't be fooled by the twist off top

Lots of jalapeno and citrus on the nose. Pleasant amount of acid, melon, and fresh garden herbs. Great for summer!

Great gooseberry and grapefruit here. A touch sticky. Don't leave this one sitting around too long. Drink it up!

I thought this one compared alright a year ago in a wine tasting we did with a dozen nz examples, but now a year later it just comes up astringent and gooseberry flab. It's missing some structure.

Tasted too much like a flower petal for my taste.
