    Winery notes: The nose is exuberant citrus fruits with ripe melon and guava with some underlying herbal and classic gooseberry notes. Fresh, sweet fruit and crisp acid gives balance and an elegant structure with a smooth finish, a classic New Zealand sauvignon blanc.

    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.

    This firm, luscious Sauvignon Blanc is impressively concentrated for the 2008 vintage. It's saturated with gooseberry and lemongrass flavors, and plenty of acidity. Give it several years in bottle to mellow, or serve it now with freshly shucked oysters. 92 Points. Wine and Spirits, February 2009.

    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.

    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.
