Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
A cool and grassy sauvignon from Tasmania's east coast, showing wild-nettly aromas, sweet white flowers, melons and tropical fruits. The palate's taut and elegant, with grassy melon and restrained tropical-fruit flavour, all laced tight with crisp acid crunch.

Very musky nose with lots of sweet floral perfume and fresh-cut green apple. There's a decent whack of grassy flavour, quite simple and direct with grapefruit to close.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Strong varietal sauvignon, with a blend of tropical fruit and a touch of nettle; the palate is lean and focused, with traces of pungent fruit and mineral fingering on the finish.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
This hails from the east coast of Tasmania, and shows really vibrant tropical and citrus fruit aromas, quite heady and exotic. Some grassy flavours on entry, then straight into smooth-textured tropicals, heading to more savoury crispness through the finish. Did somebody say oysters?

Herb, passionfruit and citrus aromas and flavours; has line and length, and is not sweet.

Pleasant wine; soft texture and minimal oak.

Well-controlled oak, but needs more fruit for higher points.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Very delicate oak infusion, more structural than flavour; gentle tropical and passionfruit backdrop.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; the barrel-ferment oak is but part of a wine which is crammed with flavour from start to finish, and with some apparent sweetness, which may simply come from the fruit. The only criticism is that it is short on finesse.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is potent, rich and powerful, with fruit rather than oak the driving force. The abundantly flavoured palate is no less strongly fruit-driven by ripe sauvignon flavours.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; light gooseberry fruit aromas are complexed by just a hint of oak on the bouquet; the palate is quite rich and ripe, with tropical fruit characters and soft – or ripe - acidity (if there can be such a thing) on the finish.
