Vintage 2012, 88 Pts – International Wine Cellar (Stephen Tanzer), 9/1/13 - Aromas of grapefruit zest, green melon, asparagus and white pepper. Supple and pliant on the palate; not particularly complex but boasts good volume and life in the mouth, as well as an enticing hint of sweetness. Nicely done

Vintage 2012, Gold – 2013 San Francisco International Wine Competition

Vintage 2011, 92 Pts – Tasting Panel (Beverage Dynamics), 5/1/12 - A brilliant straw/ pale gold in the glass, the nose is filled with grapefruit peel, and spice; a great example of a more restrained style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc; bright acidity, without being overwhelming; clean and lingering finish, with great balance

Vintage 2011, 88 Pts – Wine Spectator, 4/30/13 - A bright, juicy wine, showing good intensity to the key lime and kiwifruit flavors, with lively, detailed notes of green melon and citrus. Light-bodied and smooth. Drink now. 75,000 cases imported
