Ripe, verging on sweet, aromas of green apples and citrus show only a little of the gooseberry fragrance normally associated with Kiwi Sauvignons. Fairly round and soft in the mouth, it does have a hint of jalapeño on the finish that adds varietal spice.
Another narrow, cranberry-tomato tartly-fruited red. A hint of sweet, sweaty leather (nicer than it sounds) and the round, smooth mouthfeel add some character here. But this finishes with prickly tannins and a slight metallic note. It needs more and deeper fruit.
