Smells amazing! True to New Zealand Sauv Blanc! Love the taste. Has a tropical note to it!

Huge flavor, aromatic, big bouquet yet light and crisp. Smell of citrus fruits hit your nose before you take a sip.

Gulpable. Grapefruit. Musky. Grass. Great acid. Over delivers for $10. #wine #sauvignonblanc #nz #awatere

Sweet, but still crisp. Very easy to drink.

Bright, tart and fruity. Good with food, or solo.

Good lime and melon flavors. Refreshing and enjoyable; unlike some Marlborough sauv Blancs with heavy melon, I could drink plenty of this. Only real flaw is mid palate where the flavors seem to slightly clash (hard to explain). But finish is smooth, although not long.

Pineapple, lychee and a little citrus. The finish is a little tart and watery and then it disappears.

Wow. That's all I have to say. Departing from the cutsie wine lingo, I will say that this is a mainstay in the cellar if you can find a vendor. Best SB I've ever had period.
