92 points Rebecca Gibb, MW (Vinous): "[$23 list] This Sauvignon is neither flamboyant in its aromatics nor firm in its structure, but quietly understated, like its maker – and it is all the better for it. The pure and delicate flavors include apple and elderflower. The aromatic intensity has had the volume turned down to a pleasing hum thanks to 20% wild fermentation. Light in body, displaying lovely balance and poise. Drink: 2020-2023. (Nov 2020)"

91 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Subtle scents of snap peas mark the nose of the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. There's passion fruit as well, plus pink grapefruit and a slight crushed tomato-leaf component. It's similarly complex on the palate, where it's medium-bodied, with a strong core of grapefruity acids that give it backbone and length. Drink: 2020-2021. (Mar 2020)"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$23 list] This wine shows oodles of bright citrus, melon, stone fruit, green tea, tomato leaf and white spice characters. The laser-sharp acidity texture, keeping the fruit bright and tangy. Alcohol 13.5%. (May 2020)"

Producer notes: "Imagine yellow-fleshed peaches, rock melon and blackcurrant--a sponge cake with lemon icing, chamomile and hints of rose petal--this is a delicately perfumed and deliciously ripe-fruited interpretation of Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The palate is both subtle and textural, showing considerable ripeness and concentration, with a crisp and long, juicy finish. Alcohol 13.5%."
