Wine SpectatorAn aromatic version, with intriguing beeswax, honeysuckle, lanolin and marmalade notes that give way to a smooth, lush core of apricot and lime zest flavors. Mouthwateringly smooth and juicy, showing appealing complexity. Drink now. 16,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Sauvignon Blanc shows hints of green on the nose but sits more firmly in the fig and stone fruit camp. It's medium-bodied, with a white grapefruit element that extends from start to finish, providing a backbone for the riper notes. Clean and refreshing, it should be consumed over the next year or two.
