"Wente remains remarkably adept at making very good wines in big volumes
at fair prices. This is a textbook example—a crisp, layered and complex SB that’s
as floral as spring, generous in acidity and lemony on the finish. Pair with shellfish,
chicken or goat cheese on crackers."

"It has a very precise bouquet with dewy green apples, smoke and a touch of gooseberry – very Loire-like in style. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity. It is superbly balanced with tangible minerality towards the finish. This is life affirming, tensile Sauvignon. Drink now-2015.

"Ripe but well-focused, with straw, white peach, kiwifruit pulp and pink grapefruit notes all wound together and
extending through the well-defined finish. Very solid, this should mellow with modest cellaring. Drink now through
2015. 1,200 cases imported."
