Taste profile from the winemaker: "Expressive aromatics of gooseberry and tropical fruits epitomise classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and this wine embraces these characters. The wine is refined and elegant with a generous mid palate finishing with significant length."

ABC Wines review: This discerning, exceptional wine has a crisp, refreshing mineral dryness that perfectly complements its sophisticated tropical fruit flavors. There is a subtle hint of grass and herbs on the long, smooth finish. A perfect wine for a wide variety of dishes. Rated 90 points by Wine Spectator in April 2007. Rated 87 points by Wine Enthusiast in November 2007. Our score: Excellent.
