REVIEWS

93 Points, Beppi Crosariol, Canada Globe and Mail Newspaper

Lean and complex in a come-hither-and-I'll-tell-you-secrets way. This is a top-drawer Marlborough sauvignon blanc, with a flinty essence wafting over gooseberry, grapefruit, lemongrass and hay notes. Silky yet simultaneously tight and crisp.
