Lifted apple and green capsicum on the nose. Relatively sweet fruit flavours of gooseberry with a little passionfruit and capsicum. There's a degree of resudual sweetness here but it is pleasant and lively with good texture and a citrussy zing.

Herbal-mineral hints on the nose. Quite a ripe style with sweat and passionfruit over gooseberry, lychee and currant bud. Palate is warm and broad with some pretty big reductive characters showing through.

An attractive wine that shows a typically Awatere tobacco character on the nose. The palate is relatively ripe and round with grapefruit, gooseberry and capsicum. Clean and straightforward; nicely textural with pretty good concentration in the mouth.

Overt, lively, grassy note. Palate is bright and fresh with nice purity of cut grass, culinary herbs; beginning to show capsicum-like methoxypyrazines. One pnellist found it somewhat unbalanced between sweetness and acidity.

Lightly fragrant on the nose. Palate is flavoured by gooseberry, capsicum and herb notes and shows a bit of sweet and sour character. Pleasantly simple and light.

In the context of Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is a stand out performance due to the quality of the base wine used. It's packed with flavours of citrus, gooseberry and fresh herbs along with some lime and lychee notes. Their is a fair degree of residual sweetness to the palate but this is a wine that hits its target market dead-on. Well made and very broadly appealing.

Here's a really appealing example. It has nicely complex aromas showing cirtus, tobacco and a touch of smoke. These flow through the mouth with gooseberry and lychee, passion fruit and that classic Awatere tobacco note. It shows really good concentration on the palate with proper depth and texture. A generous wine with wide appeal and a very reasonable price tag.

Some reductive notes on the nose, such as sweat. Rich, ripe, well flavoured Sauvignon Blanc showing gooseberry, passionfruit and a hint of green tobacco or tomato leaf. Not too sweet, showing controlled acidity, good concentration of flavour on the palate though some rather firm phenolics on the mid and back palate.

From the winery closest to the epicentre of the Seddon shakes comes a bold wine that should trigger a tremmor or two of pleasure this summer. Lifted herbal aromatics lead on to a lush, punchy mouthful, alive with citrus and mineral notes.

"A crowd-pleasing summer wine for those who can get their heads (and tonsils) around a salmon-pink pinot gris with bubbles. Actually tastes as good a it looks with hints of pears, peaches, berries - and plenty of bubbles, of course."

"Friendly and lively, the inviting bouquet shows peach, citrus and floral aromas, followed by a ripe and rounded palate that's shows lovely fruit intensity, backed by nicely integrated acidity. Smooth and lingering. At its best: now to 2016."

"It's deeply coloured and intensely aromatic, displaying blueberry, dark plum and floral with a hint of nutty characters on the nose. The palate is filled with ripe fruit flavours and finishes smooth and supple. At its best: now to 2018."
