There are some Marlborough sauvignons blanc that are just too overt and outspoken, like a scantily clad young thing leaving nothing to the imagination. Then there are superior offerings like this estate-grown offering. There are herbaceous notes on the nose, as you’d expect, but the palate offers so much more with bright, ripe citrus notes, minerality, crispness and concentration, along with restrained grassiness and hints of gunsmoke. Plenty of length; plenty of flavour but most of all, crunchy freshness, intensity and length.
Top rated white wine! Grassy great and refreshing. It’s a burst of lemon sunshine on a cloudy day. Great food wine. Drink 2012-2014. 90/100
