Pale straw with green edges and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with floral herb notes. On the palate juicy apricot, peach and grapefruit with lemon zest, classic New Zealand SB. Vivid acidity and spice complement this well balanced wine to a medium finish.

Pale lemon in color with a green hue.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate tangy and interesting.

Showing limes, grapefruits, light tropical notes, earth, grass, gooseberry, lychee, and mango.

I've had better vintages of this wine, especially the 2020.

Easy drinking and good by itself as a sipping wine by the pool.

Pairs nicely with food too, like fresh seafood and oysters.

88 points.

$12.

Not a sauv blanc guy but it’s fine. Grassy lemon. Standard

When presented with a less than inspiring wine selection down the shore, I go with an old reliable. Grassy, citrusy (lime! Grapefruit!), passion fruit, white pepper, refreshing and reliable. Don’t mind pouring half the bottle into my brown butter caper sauce, but also enjoy a couple of cold glasses while cooking like the basic b I am.

Too acidic and tangy for my palate. Not a bad wine, just not for me

Like it! $13 bottle at Sam’s/Target. Slightly sweet and easy drinking. Great summer wine.
