    Winery notes: A vibrant nose of blackberries and plums layered with spice and dried herbs. A powerful yet finely structured wine with generous dark fruit flavours interwoven with anise and crushed herb notes. The palate lingers with subtle oak characters, sweet fruit and ripe juicy tannins.

    All of the fruit is from vineyards in the Rapaura District of the Marlborough river valley. Family owned and operated, this 'grower' family turned to winemaking 1992. Mostly stainless steel with a few parcels aged in used French oak.

    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.`

    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.

    90 Points Wine Advocate : ?Quite a high extraction on the nose with dark cherry and plum with a touch of mulberry, the palate soft and supple with a plush finish tinged with white pepper. Some classic Pinot earthy elements to the aroma. The mid-palette brings out dark cherry juice and some mushroom. A joy to sip.?

    The Sauvignon Blanc is a fantastic example of the Marlborough style, with the intense aromatic aromas, lively acidity and mineral textures for which this region is renowned. This wine has a pale straw colour and a bouquet of lifted aromas of ripe gooseberry and passion fruit with hints of citrus. On the palate the wine is full bodied and aromatic with ripe tropical flavours, classic Sauvignon expression and balanced acidity.

    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

    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 lifted medley of aromatics with passionfruit, lychee and gooseberry characters. A rich and mouthfilling palate with abundant tropical fruit flavours of passionfruit, lychee and gooseberry following the aroma. Beautifully balanced with a textural mid-palate and lingering tropical aftertaste.
