    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This fun white is a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with aggressive flavors of grapefruit and gooseberry followed by a crisp and lingering finish. A newish label, Chasing Venus focuses on what New Zealand does best, Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit source is from the Comely Bank and the Griggs vineyards in the heart of the Marlborough region. Wine and Spirits: `Green lime flavors fill this creamy, rich Sauvignon, its high-toned fruit targeted at grilled fish.`
