Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Veteran Kevin Judd has turned out another fine effort. Passion fruit and pea tendril aromas impart a welcome green edge that's never overwhelming, picking up layers of white grapefruit on the plump, medium-bodied palate. The finish is intense, long and citrusy.

Wine SpectatorOpens with a fragrant floral note, offering high tones of honeysuckle. The lemon meringue pie and dried mango flavors are intense and vivid, showing terrific intensity on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a fresh grass, bay leaves, green beans and wild thyme-led nose with hints of lime leaves and lemongrass. Medium-bodied and with a lovely creaminess to the texture, it offers great intensity and a long green-veggie finish.
