James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Very good varietal character; the aromas and flavours run from grassy to tropical, but without any break in the line; a juicy mouthful and great value; seems cool-grown, no region of origin stated

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Sweaty, old-fashioned style with huge consumer appeal. Beautifully lifted gooseberry/passionfruit aromas - sherbety. Hugely powerful fruit bomb of a palate, slightly sweet but has the acid.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Fresh and clean; a very delicate wine without any strong varietal markers other than faint apple and gooseberry; clean finish.

This is the best wine I've seen under Dalfarras - the family label of Alaistair and Rosa Purbrick. I'm guessing that it will be discounted below $15, in which case it will be a terrific bargain. At this price, it's still a bargain. High acidity gives is a vibrance and coolness to balance ripe tropical fruit flavours, while the wine's intensity and persistence allow it to rise way above the humdrum.

No reduction whatsoever; remarkably generous varietal flavours in a tropical, passionfruit and stone fruit spectrum.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Unusually floral and estery, almost riesling-like aromas of citrus and passionfruit, with underlying grassy nuances, this elegant and almost subtle sauvignon blanc reveals a palate of pleasing brightness and intensity. Lively acids keep it neatly in check, with a clean and refreshing finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the fruit of the bouquet is largely tropical, with a hint of gooseberry also apparent. These flavours come through on the palate, which opens well, but finishes a fraction sweet and thick.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Honest, if slightly grassy and flat sauvignon blanc appearing slightly cooked and lifeless. Lean and herbaceous, its palate begins promisingly with some tangy fruit, but finishes a little nondescript, with soft, lemony acids.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; the clean and smooth bouquet has soft gooseberry fruit, the palate with quite good depth, the varietal character picking up intensity; well-balanced.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; a light, fresh and clean bouquet with gently herbaceous varietal fruit, and a quite flavoursome palate, with a mix of gooseberry, passionfruit and more herbal flavours. A solid follow-up to the '96.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; there is well ripened and nicely balanced fruit on the bouquet running through the tropical/gooseberry end of the spectrum, moving to slightly more mineral/herbal notes on the palate, but with well-above-average intensity and length. Elegant, unforced but flavoursome.
