"Pungent with aromas of freshly cut grass, crushed herbs and a tinge of fresh sweat, with zingy hints of passionfruit, blackcurrant leaves and nettles, oodles of mouthfilling flavour and just a little complexity. It proudly shouts at the top of its voice "I'm Marlborough sauvignon blanc" and indeed, it's one of the best examples of the vibrant style with which the region wows the wine-drinking world"
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 2 July 2009

"So big and gorgeous it's like Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in drag. Luscious, complex"
Bob Campbell, MW, Taste, Dec 2008
