    I was excited about this wine because I really enjoyed the Crocodillo. However this is a big wine in need of a big meal.Great full wine for a lower alcohol wine. Fruity on the nose with a crisp finish.

    Te Awa Farms Sauvignon Blanc - 2003

    I routinely scamper away from wine at this price point but found myself alone with a glass of it at a family gathering during the recent holiday. Very impressed by what it brings to palate. Earthy grip, dirt, rocks, sand, gravel, all good, especially for such a low priced wine. Some fruit but complexities are the star. Even detected southern Dominican cigar wrapper and variety of spices on finish. Bravo, Thorny Devil, Bravo

    What a rich and hedonistic nose with molten chocolate, cacao and jammy black fruits in a wash of perfumed and tending toward floral aromas; same in the mouth; perhaps as rich and hedonistic as this wine can get without being a spread for croissants; powerful black fruit flavors are ripe and jammy, but avoid becoming too fleshy; there is a solid acidic core backed up by solid tannins that have a dry, earthen character; all-in-all a well-nigh perfect example of this wine.

    I quite enjoyed this bottle. It was a little earthy, damp, and acidic for me, a bit bigger than my ideal bottle, but i appreciated its complexity and size.
