    Aromas of ripe passionfruit and citrus blossom interplay with hints of lime on the nose. A concentrated palate evokes the flesh of juicy tropical fruit, balanced by subtle acidity and fine minerality. The Woollaston Estates vineyards are situated in Nelson, New Zealand's sunniest region. The wine was produced in a four-level, gravity-fed winery designed for the gentlest possible handling of the grapes and wine.

    `Our Sauvignon Blanc has an enticing bouquet of citrus, passion-fruit, and guava. Its crisp finish is characteristic of Marlborough, New Zealand's premier winegrowing region, and makes this wine a perfect pairing for summer salads, roasted chicken, pan-fried prawns and seafood dishes.`

    The 2006 Pinot Noir is endowed with a fabulous, mineral-rich nose, superbly defined with touches of strawberry and boysenberry, the palate very concentrated yet very well-defined with vibrant acidity, ebullient red-berried fruits and a svelte, silky, sophisticated finish. Its quality shines through this lovely wine that should drink over 3-5 years. This is another icon of New Zealand, whose wines helped put their Pinot Noir on the international map.--Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    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.`

    Winery notes: Our vineyard works hard to bring you the zestiest, most refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from the cool Marlborough valley. Here the grapes mature slowly, giving them layers of complexity and a vibrant zing, reminiscent of your grandma's lemon chiffon cake. The flavors are integrated, delighting the senses with layer upon layer of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite. Serve chilled with oysters on a half shell or with a rich and succulent Lobster Risotto.

    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.`

    Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir is highly colored with bright ruby red in colour. Savoury spice notes are accented by perfumed aromas of violets, red cherry, blackberry and ruby grapefruit on the nose. Complex flavours of cherry, root spice, smoke and florals predominate the textural and creamy palate. The finish is long with redfruit and spice drawn out by the fine, silky tannin structure. Delicious with poultry, game and lamb dishes. Drink now through 2011.RP

    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.
