Accolades

“One of the nicest sauvignon blancs I've tasted in a while, this is lively and full of varietal character without becoming excessively herbal. Bursts with fruit, with a fine crisp finish.”
Ben Giliberti, WashingtonPost.com 25 January 2006


“This is more tropical-fruity than is usual in a Marlborough savvy, but nicely balanced and reasonably crisp.”

Capital Times, 12 April 2006


"Bright and juicy, with distinct green pea and lime peel aromas and flavors, finishing with a touch of grapefruit."(87 points)
Wine Spectator, April 2006
