Regan Drew, Vinonotebook - “Sweet/savoury aromas with varietal passionfruit skin and capsicum, broken asparagus spear, blackcurrant leaf, sun warmed straw, ‘white rock’ earthiness. Solid varietal flavours: light tropicals, passionfruit pip, grapefruit, with depth to the mid fruit profile and racy, zingy acidity to close that leaves the mouth watering. More like this please.” Rating: 17.25 /20

90 Points – Gary Walsh, Winefront. “They race whippets, as I recall. They are kind of like mini greyhounds. And as Mike Baird likes to say ‘When a problem comes along, you must whippet’. This is quite a light and racy style, as it happens. Subtle capsicum spice, grapefruit, passionfruit and a slight smokiness. Grapefruit and passionfruit, delivers enough flavour without being over-the-top, light chalkiness to the texture and grapefruity acidity to close. Feels a bit coarse on the finish, but stays trim and neat. Good.”

92 points & TOP 100 - The Advertiser, Tony Love.
93 points – Martin Field, Wine Talk. “Adelaide Hills, South Australia. A refreshing change from the endless New Zealand sauvignon blanc that seems to be the Sunshine Coast’s most popular wine. Light and pale to the eye. There are aromatics of white flowers and asparagus in the bouquet. In the mouth the wine is dry and generously fruity. A true fruit cocktail at the tangy end of the fruit spectrum - I tasted hints of kiwifruit, passion fruit, pineapple and lychee. Great as an aperitif or entrée wine.”
