"Lifted and perfumed aromas with smoke and citrus blossom overlaying notes of blackcurrant and gooseberry. A lush sweet fruited entry full of exotic green fruits leads into a big hit of passionfruit with blackcurrant and gooseberry following on from the nose. Driving, juicy and balanced."


- Babich


"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is fresh with a firm core of well-concentrated aromas of passionfruit with notes of snow peas, fresh herbs, and subtle nettle and cut-grass elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is firm and tightly concentrated with a heart of passionfruit and tropical fruit, along with cut-grass, nettle and thirst-quenching minerals. The palate features slippery acidity and plenty of energy and drive, with good linearity. The wine carries to a taut, lingering finish of passionfruit, herbs and nettles. This is a tightly bound, finely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb, nettle and mineral flavours with a slippery mouthfeel and good line. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood, and salads and vegetables over the next 2 years."
