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.

Terrific Sauvignon Blanc with all of the positive NZ attributes, but the balance is better than most. Delicious on its own or with food, especially fish and chicken. 2018

Rich Sauvignon blanc at 13% vol with a structured finish. Great value.

This is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs we’ve had in a long time. And it’s currently on sale at Harris Teeter.

Nose hits you with bright citrus, ample tropical fruit and grassy goodness. Fragrant. Jumps out of the glass. Color so pale almost looks like water. Flavor profile a fun Sauvignon Blanc. Grass and lime dominant for me. Nice if short bite at the end too. Clean, high acidity make this a fine spring or summer choice.

Very nice Marlborough NZ Sav Blanc. Slotted with just the right of citrus notes.

Very fresh, citrus nose, good acidity ... really nice wine to have more than a glass
