Another Kiwi local Sam Kim gives the wine 93 points. He describes the wine as “fabulously aromatic and instantly appealing with apricot, green rockmelon and lemon/lime zest aromas, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering bright fruit intensity together with juicy acidity, making it delectably appealing.”

Nick Stock, writing for gives The Better Half Sauvignon Blanc 2021 90 points and describes it as “Sliced apples, fresh pears, lemons and crushed stones on the nose with some fennel and white pepper.”

Wine Spectator’s MaryAnn Worobiec notices “citrus notes that mingle with a touch of ripe peach flavors” and “a hint of fennel pollen” while The Tasting Panel Magazine’s Meredith May gives the wine 91 points and suggests that : “Scents of cut grass, grapefruit zest and basil draw you into this charmer at first sip, which delivers a glaze of pineapple, a pinch of oregano, a hint of spearmint, and a touch of salinity.”
