Taste profile from the winemaker: "Good clarity with light straw color. Fresh stone fruit, citrus, and herbs mingle with floral accents. Zesty, medium body with flavors citrus, melon and herb flavors that linger on the palate."

ABC Wines review: This is an exceptionally well-balanced sauvignon blanc. The fragrances of freshly sliced fruit and herbs are followed by a crisp, clean taste of tropical fruit with a touch of citrus. There is a refreshing grassiness to the finish which is full, long, and mildly acidic. Allow this wine to remain opened a few minutes before pouring to improve its complexity. Serve alone or with grilled dishes. Our score: Just shy of Excellent.
