Taste profile from the winemaker: "The 2007 vintage is pale green in color with lemon shades. Aromas of white flowers, smoky gooseberry and red grapefruit notes. It has medium-high alcohol from the palate all the way through the finish. Light and refreshing, this vintage has intense depth and concentration of fresh-cut hay and tropical pineapple that move on to a slight mineral finish. A soft and round mid-palate evolves into a lovely, limey acid finish creating length and persistence."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits classic aromas of gooseberry and grass, typical of the sauvignon blancs from New Zealand. On the palate, citrus flavors come forth with a fine balance of acidity and a slight flinty character. Tropical fruit flavors can be discerned into the long, very smooth (though slightly overly astringent) finish. A fine example of this varietal at an exceptional price. Our score: Excellent.
