An elegant wine with bright aromatics that tease the nose with tropical scents. An entry on the palate that is crisp and refreshing, offering vibrant honeydew and zest of citrus. The wine lingers in the mouth with a stony minerality and pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc with a refined finish.

88 Points, Wine Enthusiast:

"This is a lovely Sauvignon Blanc that shows enough elegance and finesse to serve with fine food. It’s dry and crisp, with citrus, lemongrass, gooseberry and mineral flavors. Nice with tempura appetizers. S.H." (11/1/2010)

87 Points, Wine Spectator:

"There's a pungent quality to the passion fruit, papaya, melon and fresh herb flavors, with a fleshy body, tangy acidity and hints of white pepper and mineral on the finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases made. –MW" (8/31/2010)
