James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2014
This is very lively and intense, with wonderful energy and brightness. Full body with wonderful finesse. It goes on for minutes. What an amazing finish. It shows dried mangoes, lemons, apples and pineapples, but so lively... This is very lively and intense, with wonderful energy and brightness. Full body with wonderful finesse. It goes on for minutes. What an amazing finish. It shows dried mangoes, lemons, apples and pineapples, but so lively and fresh. Fresh honey. Such energy. As always 100 percent sauvignon blanc, and amazing. Best ever. Get it. Drink or hold.

Blazingly pure with gorgeous honeysuckle heather green almond green plum and verbena notes backed by a long macadamia nut-tinged finish. There's both tension and creaminess at the same time delivering a beautiful expression of fruit and minerality. Despite sharing the label with the second wine of the red this is grand vin white. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

The Pavillon Blanc has a very lifted very pure bouquet with lovely scents of dried pineapple vanilla white peach and honeysuckle...nigh irresistible. The palate is medium-bodied with great fruit intensity on the entry: yellow plum vanilla custard creams and a touch of guava wrapped up in crisp acidity from start to finish. It is very harmonious towards the finish. Superb.

Highly aromatic nose speaks strongly of sauvignon with its notes of green fig yellow melon pear and rosemary. Then rich and pure in the mouth with persistent flavors of tropical fruit peach sage and white flowers. The note of green fig repeats on the long smooth saline finish.

Tank fermented then aged in a mix of one-third each new 1-year and 2-year old oak. An exciting wine showing sauvignon blanc characteristics of lemon peel gooseberry white grapefruit and orange peel veering into fatter notes of melon. This shows moderate acidity on entry with more exotic tropical flavors including passion fruit and orange marmalade. On the back palate the freshness expresses itself in lemony acidity that make for a clean and lively finish. Enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
