Bob Campbell 94, Michael Cooper 5 star, Cameron Douglas 94
Bob Campbell's reviews: Appealing sauvignon with a weighty, textural palate and intense passionfruit, guava, box hedge, root ginger and saline/oyster shell flavours. Complex wine from the Dillons Point subregion. 15/9/2022.
Michael Cooper's reviews: The vigorous, very youthful 2022 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown at Dillons Point, in the lower Wairau Valley, and handled entirely in stainless steel tanks. More subtle than many of the district's wines, it is bright, light lemon/green, with intense, ripe, passionfruit-evoking flavours, a slightly salty streak, and a crisp, dry (2.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Best drinking mid-2023+
Cameron Douglas MS reviews: Excellent "Intense and new with a pungency and purity, aromas of fresh sage and tropical fruits, a wet stone mineral quality with a fresh apple and wild white flowers suggestions. Lush, fresh, salivation and delicious on the palate. Flavours of citrus and fresh herbs, tropical fruits and white fleshed orchard fruits are contrasted by a saline led acidity, a light satin texture and lengthy finish. Great drinking from 2023 through 2029".
