94 points Rebecca Gibb, MW (Vinous): "There's a delectable creaminess and rich weightiness to this Sauvignon Blanc. The label states that it hails from old vines; at an average 25 years, they are indeed pretty old in a very new, New World wine country. This isn't a huge fruit salad of Marlborough Savvy aromas; it's much more nuanced, offering subtle violets, nectarines and apple skin that dare I say has a whiff of the Loire. While still fresh, the acid is rather gentler than you'd expect - potentially an expression of this ripe vintage. An excellent showing. Drink: 2020-2023. (Nov 2020)"
Producer notes: "Wonderful aromatics of yellow flowers, lime, and a warm summer meadow. Lovely delicious palate brimming with nectarine, fresh lime, and hints of ripe nectarine and gooseberry finishing with a lovely long feel of the stony soils and refreshing acidity."
