Paretai is the premium Marlborough sauvignon from alluvial riverbank soils. It has ripe, perfumed and pretty nose of passion fruit, persimmon, fresh dill and mint. The palate is smooth, almost creamy and a touch sweet, with juicy acidity and loads of fruit and excellent length. Those who find NZ sauvignons too brash should have a look. This is quite classy. Score: 90 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, May 2013)
