94 points Sam Kim
"It's intensely aromatic and instantly appealing on the nose showing grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, nectarine and lime peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's lively and flavoursome. It's punchy and vibrant with excellent varietal purity, finishing long and refreshing."

"Supple and succulent, offering a generous and juicy mix of passion fruit, Key lime and ruby grapefruit flavors. Expressive and strong on the finish, with touches of freshly grated ginger and green tea. Drink now."

"Full bottle 1,170 g.
Unusual to find a white wine that tastes so much of blackcurrants! Sure, it smells of blackcurrant bud, with its fragrant, salvia/sage/resin-fresh greenness, but the blackcurrant on the palate is fruit, not leaf. Loads of lemon and lime zest and acidity, a buzz of green gooseberry and a touch of aniseedy basil leaf. Charming Sauvignon Blanc with a tiny touch of extra residual sugar but it's really well-judged and the wine has this lovely, compact, neat balance all the way through to the very last bit of the finish. GV 16.5/20 points. (TC)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Tasting Notes: Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer summer days. Food Pairing: Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with all types of Pacific Rim fare.
