Wine Advocate Issue #176. Apr 2008. Reviewer : Neal Martin. This is a decent, fruit-driven Sauvignon Blanc: less of the cat's pee and more of the apple-flavoured fruit. Just a faint hint of gooseberry on the green apple nose that lacks a little intensity. The palate has a little fatness to it, very good fruit, plump clean fruit with apple, citrus lemon, orange zest and a touch of spice. Viscous towards the finish. A well made Waipara Sauvignon Blanc for those who prefer their SB "tamed". Drink now.
