Taste profile from the winemaker: "Ripe grapes [give] this wine an intense bouquet which combines appealing berry and passion fruit aromas. Melon and tropical fruit flavours on the palate are balanced by crisp acidity and a lingering finish."

ABC Wines review: Bright, fresh grassy aromas typical of New Zealand sauvignon blancs are on display here. The mineral crispness of the wine is balanced by blended, though muted, fruit flavors. A mildly acidic and quickly dissipating finish are all that mar this otherwise fine effort. Rated 86 points by Wine Spectator in 2006. Rated 87 points by Wine Enthusiast in 2006. Our score: Above average, nearly excellent.
