It’s the odd Kiwi producer whose Riesling is more expensive than their Sauvignon Blanc, but it shows where the priorities are at this winery. Softly fragrant pears and limes meld with ripe golden apples on the soft, somewhat sweet (17g/L residual sugar) palate.
Prototypical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, marrying pungent red pepper and passion fruit notes with round, ripe melon flavors. It’s a little soft, with a hint of honey on the finish, so serve it well-chilled to help give it more cut.
Lime and lemon zest along with green pepper on the nose, and then sour fruit and too much canned pea flavor on the palate. Hard to describe other than to say that it lacks fruit. Imported by Dreyfus, Ashby & Co.
