Super premium Sauvignon from Kevin Judd, ex Cloudy Bay winemaker. His vast experience with sauvignon really shines through here. It's perfectly balanced and elegant with ripe fruit flavours that are expertly tempered by crisp citrus on the finish. A superb wine.
The winery writes "A delightful fusion of ripe summer fruit and delicate floral perfume – Golden Queen peaches and poached yellow pears; baked apples, mango and rock melon; mingled with apple blossom fragrance and a twist of lemon sherbet. Succulent and crisp, with a delicate fennel-like herbal quality and a dry, textural palate. Quintessentially Marlborough, but a deliciously subtle, ripe interpretation of the classic style."
NZ Wine Rater writes "A classic, pure, Loire-like wine on the nose with fragrant lemongrass, jasmine and redcurrant aromas and smoky complexity that keeps unfolding with time in the glass. It's so concentrated as to almost taste sweet initially. The palate is viscous and potent, has a remarkable texture with striking power and length. Very impressive and worth making a fuss about."
