Reviews

Yvonne Lorkin, yvonnelorkin.com
"No mistaking which grape variety this sweet treat is made from. From the instant whiff of passionfruit curd, tangy lemon verbena, sweet cut grass and complex lime and caramelised capsicum characters, you know it’s a rare example of dessert sauvignon blanc. It’s got a crazy spectrum of flavours that will no doubt polarise people; but at this price I encourage you to give it a nudge."

"It is distinctively sauvignon on the nose, displaying feijoa, passionfruit and herbaceous characters with subtle backed peach notes. The palate is intensely fruity and lively with zesty acidity and attractive sweetness. A delightful sweet wine showing varietal richness and plenty of appealing flavours. At its best: now to 2016."
