"Ripe and fleshy, with melon, kiwifruit and peach flavors that show richness in addition to a crisp, vibrant finish, revealing a hint of lemongrass. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.–MW"

"This Waiheke Island-based winery sources its Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough. The result is a rather leafy, slightly vegetal wine that's reminiscent of tomato stalk and celery leaf, yet remains refreshing and pleasant, with a strong citrus core. Try it with ceviche or simple broiled sole. - Joe Czerwinski"

"This 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough area offers outstanding value. Crisp and fresh with a hint of herbaceousness intermixed with notes of wet pebbles, melon and caramelized citrus, it is medium-bodied, surprisingly long and very well-crafted. Consume it over the next year. - Robert Parker"
