    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.

    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.

    New Zealand enjoyed a particularly long, dry summer in 2008. Favourable weather patterns throughout flowering and fruit set provided good crop quantities, with drought conditions ensuring superior ripening and flavour development throughout all grape growing regions.

    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: 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.

    `Fermented at a relatively warm 35 degrees and undergoing 11 months lees-contact in barrel, the 2006 Pinot Noir is one of the standouts of its kind. A very primal nose of cherry, Doris plum and ripe strawberries all with fabulous definition and vivacity. The palate is beautifully balanced, very elegant and taut with notes of red cherry, plum, raspberry leaf and a hint of cassis towards the structured finish. Wonderful stuff - it is not a crime to drink now but I would leave it a couple of years before opening.` RP.

    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.

    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

    90 points Wine Spectator: `Taut, lively and full of personality, with gooseberry and passion fruit flavors announcing the source clearly, hovering enticingly on the finish. Drink now.`

    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.
