Pale straw, green hue. The nose is lifted with rich tropical notes, orange zest and dried herbs. The palate is lively with melon and peach balanced by citrus fruit and fresh acidity.
92 Points | "Attractively fruited and beautifully lifted, showing apricot, lemon zest, red capsicum and subtle spice notes on the nose, leading to a juicy palate offering fabulous fruit intensity backed by bright acidity, making it flavoursome and lingering. At its best now to 2024." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
89 Points | "Bright, fresh and fruity bouquet with classic SB aromas of lemon and tropical fruits, layers of fresh herbs, apple and seam of green bell-pepper. Equally crisp and refreshing on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet, there’s a grapefruit pith then tropical fruit flavour, plenty of acidity and varietal persistence throughout the palate. Dry finish, balanced and ready to drink from purchase day and through 2023." - Cameron Douglas MS
89 Points | "Dry, tangy sauvignon blanc with fresh herb, grapefruit, citrus and green capsicum flavours. Nice purity supported by a backbone of vibrant acidity which leads to a crisp, dry finish." - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
