This is a slim, very bright, tender sauvignon blanc with a fine nose of passion fruit, nettle and lime. It's very clean, fresh and balanced with a hint of sweetness and a lemon, dry, slightly coarse finish. Very good length. Score: 88 (David Lawrason, www.WineAlign.com, Jan 2013)

Grassiness, nettles, gooseberry, and spices on the nose. It has crisp acidity with lots of ripe fruit. Not quite as good as the 2011 vintage.
