Musk melon, lime and minerality dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy with luscious pear and kiwifruit on the mid-palate. A well balanced, medium weight wine.
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc opens with gooseberry, green apple and grass notes with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied with a good amount of freshness and varietal character, it finishes medium-long and with good balance. Drink it now to 2015. (Oct 2013)

WINE SPECTATOR (90) Serves up concentrated, fleshy flavors of grapefruit, lime juice and intense minerality. Fresh and lively, appealing for its zingy grapefruit flavor, hinting at peach and lime as the finish keeps zipping along. Drink now. Enjoy as an aperitif or with seafood or pork.
After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks and fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavors.
