#21 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2015 -

WS 93 WE 91 WA 90 - "Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a definitive expression of the region and its season. Appealing concentration and poise suggests a wine with the ability to age. The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit. A generous palate reveals ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. Perhaps the hallmark of this vintage is its persistent finish rich with minerality."



#21 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2015 -

WS 93 WE 91 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Smart Buy! - "Stylish and generous, exhibiting a complex array of flavors, from white grapefruit and lemon curd to candied ginger, lemon verbena, honeysuckle and lime zest. Achieves elegance, power and refreshment in lovely harmony. Drink now."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "Classic gooseberry and pink grapefruit notes feature gentle herbal nuances on the nose. There’s ample weight and texture on the palate, with a burst of mouthwatering citrus on the finish."

According to Wine Advocate - "the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough is intensely scented of gooseberries, elderflower and fresh lemon with hints of white asparagus and sage. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with vibrant vegetal and citrus notes held up by a lively acid backbone and good long finish."

According to Wine & Spirits - "Dense with orange citrus flavor, this is the richly textured wine that popularized Marlborough sauvignon blanc here in the US. It has a touch of sweetness, like citron candies, and a bristle of jalapeño heat on the tongue. Pour it with grilled chicken."

According to Jancis Robinson - "Herbal and pungent, with a sort of saline, iodine character - reminds me a bit of some single match scotch, in fact. Wet hay too. This is certainly complex, and better than the 2013, for sure." 13.5% ABV.
