Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate this wine displays a classic New Zealand style. It is light bodied, balanced, and crisp and zesty. The flavor profile is a tasty light tart yellow grapefruit with hints of lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This is a perfect summer wine. I would pair it with lemon-garlic broiled founder on a bed of steamed spinach. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw with green hues. Aroma: Intense and powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit, grapefruit and gooseberry. Palate: A full, crisp and powerful wine showing intense flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant, with underlying gooseberry tones. This wine has full yet elegant palate, subtle minerality and a well balanced long, lingering finish. Ageing potential: Perfect for drinking immediately this wine will be at its best over the next two years
