93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Premium Sauv from the Te Muna Road terraces in Martinborough. The cooler climate of Martinborough and maturation in oak barrels has given this wine texture and complexity with a delicious line of minerality. An excellent match for fresh oysters or spicy thai food.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Very expressive bouquet with aromas of fresh lemon and crisp red apple, pure, ripe gooseberry and golden kiwifruit suggestions, fresh herbs and fruit spice. Delicious, fresh and quite powerful on the palate with a seam of minerality and back bone of acidity driving the flavours of fresh citrus and white fleshed fruits, some tropical fruit moments and lengthy persistent finish. Well made, fresh, salivating and ready. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2025+."
The winery writes "Very pale straw. A fresh and exuberant release from 2022 that talks to the vintage. Typical aromas of passionfruit pulp interwoven with kaffir lime leaf. The palate has the textural elements we have come to love in this vineyard, with succulence and sophistication. The finish is almost saline and leaves the drinker reaching for the second glass."
