The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit. A generous palate reveals ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. Perhaps the hallmark of this vintage is its persistent finish rich with minerality. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel with a mixture of cultured and wild yeasts.

Is the original Kiwi Sauvignon a touch overpriced these days? Perhaps, but there's no doubting it's a lovely example of the style, pulsing with verdant nettle, peapod, gooseberry and passion fruit flavours and pristine, luminous acidity.

Screwcap. Full, broad, sweetish, pretty pungent nose. Masses of fruit rather than Sancerre-like minerality though no trace of asparagus – nor nettles. Sweet and sour finish of medium length.
