"This is an intense wine with some elegant softness. It is fruity & fresh, lively, with fresh herbs, citrus & peach notes. The length is full & vibrant & balances beautifully with the lively acidity present." - Decanter Magazine
Grown on a single vineyard in the Hawkes Bay, the fruit for this wine was picked in outstanding condition after an excellent growing season. The grapes were gently pressed to 40% new French oak. A portion was allowed malolactic fermentation & the wine was then matured for 10 months before bottling.
★★★★+ – 92 points Sam Kim – Wine Orbit
“Youthful & beautifully fragrant, the attractive bouquet shows grapefruit, green rockmelon, lime zest & sweet basil aromas, followed by a vibrant palate that is juicy & lively. The wine delivers plenty of pristine flavours & bright acidity, finishing persistent & crisp." - Sam Kim

Exceptional New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc!
Reminiscent of very, very good Sancerre, this sensational Sauvignon Blanc is distinctly different from the typical high-acid early releases from New Zealand commonly available in Singapore. Fermented completely dry with 12 months on lees results in an ideal palate balance of acidity, soft fruit & complex characters. The wine was bottled & further aged until its recent release.
In just under five years, Gem has made its way onto the wine lists at some of the world’s leading Michelin star restaurants.
Compare with Cloudy Bay 'Te Koko' Sauvignon Blanc @$70!!

"Green apple & melon flavors lead the way, with aromatic pops of citrus zest & a refreshing finish." - Wine Spectator
Beautifully fragrant, the immediately appealing nose shows nectarine, rock melon, feijoa & lime zest characters with a hint herbaceous notes. The palate is succulent & lively, & displays excellent fruit weight & intensity, finishing juicy with a fine linger!

'Attractively-scented & flavoursome sauvignon blanc with grapefruit, tree fruit, nectarine, root ginger & delicately nutty yeast lees characters. Good purity & power. A first-class sauvignon blanc.
‘Excellent intensity & length. Smoky, grassy aftertaste. Tastes & feels classier than your average Marlborough sauvignon blanc.’ - Campbell Mattinson - Winefront
‘Wonderful purity & delicate intensity on the nose – lemon curd, floral, fresh apple & white peach. Long, linear & seamless. A stunning beauty.’ - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
