Accolades

“Full, deep and pungent nose with sweat and passionfruit. Ripe and sweet. Absolutely superb on bouquet. Dry, with wonderful aromatics to the fruit on palate.”
Raymond Chan, www.regionalwines.co.nz 29 June 2006

Sue Courtney, First Glass Wines & Spirits, 23 August 2006


"This stunner grabs you from the very start with its intense gooseberry and passionfruit aromas. Crisp in the mouth, the flavors are every bit as intense – passionfruit, limes and grapefruit flavors abound. New Zealand has raised the bar on Sauvignon Blanc with this one."
Dr. Randy Buckner, Wine Writer, Tacoma News Tribune WA, December 2006
