Bright, fresh and herbal on the nose, this has vibrant green apple, lemon and light grassy characters that you might more associate with a fine Sancerre than New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The palate follows this, with taut acidity bringing fresh, mineral and restrained fruit with hints of lemon verbena and greengage. This finds a perfect harmony, avoiding the often over-exuberant New Zealand styles and the greenness possible from Sauvignon Blancs in the Loire. Fine a crisp, with good length and purity.
