As crisp and refreshing as all the previous vintages. Great minerals. One of my favorite NZ SBs.

One of the better NZ SB’s I’ve tasted so far this summer. Exceptional mouthfeel with a broad palate of cantaloupe, grapefruit, peach.

Drank 5/7/19.

My first taste of anything from '18

Pale yellow in the glass, this displays classic New Zeland scents: Grass, lemon, kumquat, along with some underripe tangerines. Well balanced yet fairly simple with lemon curd and tangerine flavors. A touch of sweetness balances the acidity. Light body, short finish. Very refreshing.

3/21/7/5/2 +50=88 pts.

Not your typical Sauvignon blanc. Not too dry with notes of complex flavors.

Very crisp and refreshing. Pairs nicely with a 18 mo aged tomme - very good. Earthy burnt kind of taste. Rich. Crunchy kind of texture

Goatmilk blue Brie - not the best thing I’ve had, a little bitter

Very tasty and buttery (especially for a SB) very smooth with low acid
