More pretty than beautiful although I find this understated wine quite appealing. Itâ€™s a moderately concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with a pleasing medly of subtle tree and tropical fruit flavours over an underlying suggestion of herbs. Very linear and with good purity.
Tasted: Dec 2008 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $22 (~USD $18)
