cracka review

Quality and class ooze out of this stonkingly good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Bob Campbell mentions a nod to Sancerre in this wine, and its so easy to see why. Wonderful acid structure, but its the minerality in this wine that gives it a big edge over anything that thinks its in the same ball park as it.

Easily comparable to all the ' Big Hitters' of the premium Marlborough scene, Cloudy, Isabel etc. Most likely in front of those for some. Sensational stuff.

expert reviews

Bob Campbell MW (2015 Vintage) says
A fine example of the Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc style with gooseberry, green capsicum, nettle, wet stone mineral and a suggestion of tomato leaf. The taut acidity helps drive a lengthy finish. Very stylish wine. Gives a nod in the direction of Sancerre. (Screwcap) Score: 95 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz

winemaker's notes

These are wines that provide focus and clarity on Marlborough's fast-emerging sub-regions. Certainly regional and sometimes vineyard-specific, these wines highlight the attributes of individual sites and districts and their ensuing characteristics in the finished wines.

Pale straw with green highlight, blackcurrant leaf, lime zest, lemongrass and elderflower. Medium-bodied with white currants and preserved lemon, fresh herbs and a dry, savoury and weighty finish. Best enjoyed when young and fresh, but has the potential to age gracefully for many years. Best with summer salads, salmon, seafood, including green-lipped mussels. Serve Chilled
