Taste profile from the winemaker: "This Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with ripe gooseberry, citrus lime, melon and exotic herbal aromas. It is a fresh and ripely flavoured wine with fantastic intensity, finishing with crisp and racy acidity. Enjoy now until 2009."

ABC Wines review: Fresh tropical fruit aromas blend exceedingly well with a slate mineral crispness as this wine is first poured. The intense flavors with vegetal and grassy notes fill the mouth leaving a brisk, clean, and a bit spicy finish. This exceptional wine can be enjoyed alone or with light dishes. Rated 89 points by Wine Spectator in December 2006. Rated 90 points by Wine Enthusiast in September 2006. Our score: Excellent.
