Pale yellow with pleasing aromas of citrus and sweet peaches. One of the few barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc's which adds a wonderful toasty oak flavor setting this wine apart from the rest. Complex palate of flavors, fresh fruit, lemons, grapefruit, peaches, Asian pears and baked apple with tea and spicy acidity. Slight herb notes with a smooth and creamy well balanced finish ending with a gentle sweet character. A Fav!

Surprisingly fruity with a minimal haverbaceous components. This probably won't please fans of Marlborough but it's a lovely wine in its own right. White peach, grapefruit, lemon and ginger all combine in a crisp, fruit-forward bundle.

One of the Delectable peeps suggested I try this it was somebody’s who’s opinion I respect, cos I immediately went and scooped some up - and the verdict is that it’s excellent!
Very fruit-forward with white flowers and exotic fruits on the nose. The palate is lively and energetic. Tight acidity with good minerality. The fruits carry through and sail on. Very attractive SB.

Nose of white flowers. Pineapple, Mango and Grapefruit. Touch of white pepper on the finish. Hints of oak and vanilla. Just the right amount of Barrel Aging. Bracing acidity but still smooth and an easy drinker. Excellent!

Birthday dinner. A surprisingly soft and actually buttery Sauvignon Blanc: slight apple, hint of stone fruit; accompanying scallops.
