      13% alc
Color: Medium silver yellow. (3.0) Bouquet: Grapefruit and pear with grass and mineral. Nice concentration. (3.0) Body: Light heavyweight with excellent fruit and acidity. Coats mouth nicely. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet with even more richness. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor, but more simple and less charming. (2.5)
Overall: A very good NZ Sauvignon with clean, concentrated flavors. It would be excellent if it had just a little more complexity. (14.5)
