Always a good bet, especially when it's on sale, this is a delicious wine. I think this actually improved a bit with a couple years in the cellar. Lime, green apples, kiwifruit and a slight papaya-like earthy muskiness on the nose. Almost, but not quite, full bodied this is packed with citrus and fruit salad flavours. Crisp with a slight acidic bite this is a very refreshing drink but it also has a soft, almost creamy, mouthfeel as well. Lots of flavour and a nice finish. A really good wine, if a bit overpriced.

Actually, the price has come down significantly from where it was. This is, or was, New Zealand's premier Sauvignon Blanc; now I think it's just an above average example and still a touch pricey at that. Very new world. If you like Pouilly-Fume, this will seem a bit aggressive at first though it is a very good representation of the NZ style. Lots of citrus and acidity but with a slight creaminess as well and all wrapped up by that great pungent Sauvignon character. (northof9finewine, Tasted Jan 2011)
