|2011: 91 Points - MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: "Focused and pure, offering a tangy expression of balanced lemon, white peach, tangerine, passion fruit, melon and green tea notes. This is powerful in its persistence and juiciness, yet maintains an air of elegance. Drink now."
2011: 90 Points - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast: "This Marlborough classic remains on form, artfully blending pineapple and crushed tomato leaf notes. If itís a bit leaner than some examples from the region, itís also more elegant and refined; less explosive and flamboyant, but tighter and more focused. "
2011: 90 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc offers intense notes of gooseberries, passion fruit, grapefruit zest and grass with a hint of fresh herbs. Crisp, dry and medium bodied with a good concentration of grapefruit and herb flavors, it gives a long tropical fruit laced finish. Delicious now, it should remain fresh through 2013."
2011: 90 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Green-tinged yellow. Good dusty, spicy lift to the ripe, inviting aromas of orange pith, grapefruit and minerals. Broad, supple and ripe, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the sexy soft citrus, tropical fruit and dusty herb flavors. Easygoing for this bottling, conveying very good but not outstanding grip. Finishes pure and persistent, with a slight narrowing at the end. "
