    90 points Wine Spectator: `Light and citrusy, with grapefruit, tangerine and green melon flavors that linger on the bright, juicy finish. Drink now.` (04/09) The 2008 Momo Sauvignon Blanc is made from a blend of fruit from vineyards located on the plains of the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. The Sauvignon was picked between March 29 and April 11 in the late evening and early morning, to ensure the fruit was cool when it reached the winery. After fermentation at a low temperature, to retain fruit character, the wine was allowed time sitting on yeast lees to give greater palate depth and complexity. Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of minerality. The palate is textural and rich with ripe tropical fruit and grapefruit. The finish is crisp and dry. Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or just by itself as a refreshing aperitif.

    A well-balanced, reserve quality wine with intense, full flavors and a fresh, crisp acidity balancing the sweetness of ripe fruit.

    Bright and zingy, a lively mouthful of lime, lime peel, green apple and a whiff of herbs as the tart finish sails on and on.

    89 points Stephen Tanzer: `Rather raw aromas of capsicum, fresh herbs and lemon. Then densely packed and vibrant on the palate, with the slightly raw green pepper, fennel and lemon thyme flavors sweetened by tropical fruits. Plenty of energy and spine here. This rich, broad wine finishes with very good focus and length.` Wine Spectator: `Tart and very grassy, with good intensity to jalapeño and citrus flavors. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.` Robert Parker: `The 2007 Terroir Series Rail Bridge Awatere Sauvignon Blanc has the most minerally intense nose of the three I tasted in the range, with a typical cat?s pee and gooseberry-led nose, the palate balanced, perhaps a little anodyne but with a nice touch of spice and tomato leaf on the finish.`

    Winemakers Notes: Showing bright fruit on the nose, uplifted red and black cherry notes and elegant tannins, this wine has an inviting bouquet that leads you in to a supple well rounded palate. The wine and oak tannins are well integrated, forming a platform to display the wonderful cherry fruit notes with hints of liquorice and allspice.

    Winery notes: Garnet red in color, this wine exhibits ripe cherry and spice accentuated with rich plum and savory highlights. It has a rich, sweet approach displaying ripe dark berry fruits, subtle oak spice, velvety tannins and a long, concentrated finish. This wine's structure and concentration make it an ideal match for a wide range of foods. It will match well with field mushroom pasta or risotto. It also lends itself to rare, grilled red meats or a variety of slow cooked casseroles including game meats, such as rabbit or fowl.

    The Redcliffe success story begins in 2004 with the critically acclaimed U.S. release of the debut 2004 vintage of Redcliffe Sauvignon Blanc. U.S. wine writers and leading wine magazines were quick to recognize this deftly crafted wine, responding with high ratings and glowing reviews. A combination of ripe pear and zesty citrus fruit flavors wedded to the alluring tropical fruit notes for which New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are renowned, met with widespread praise, as did the thoughtful innovation of presenting the wine in both 750ml and 1.5 liter bottlings a first for a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and at a price that placed the new wine firmly within reach of a larger category of consumers than most other leading New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.

    Wine Enthusiast:Felton Roads Pinots have been among the best in NZ, but the 2007s step things up another notch. elton Roads 2007 Block 5 features ripe, plummy fruit backed by earthy nuances, spice and cola. Like its stablemate, its lushly textured, with a long finish.` - Joe Czerwinski

    Winemaker's notes: Dense plum purple/red in color. A variety of aromas from dry spice such as cinnamon and nutmeg to subtle fennel, licorice aromas and a roasted, slightly sweet, smoke aroma. Medium bodied with a soft, fruit driven mid-palate and fine grained tannin leading to an earthy finish. Pair with spicy entrees, mushroom dishes and roasted meats. Best within three years.

    Wine Spectator: `This is fragrant, with very good intensity to passion fruit, jasmine and guava nuances. Grass, savory herb and fleshy peach flavors carry through the finish, with briny undertones. Drink now. 16,000 cases made. Wine Enthusiast: ?Typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, pairing ripe, honeyed stone-fruit flavors with slightly grassy, herbal notes. It?s softer and lusher than many of its competitors, with less biting acidity and a soft, mouthwatering finish.`
