    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 elegant wine is produced from grapes grown in Marlborough's Wairau Valley region. A beautifully balanced wine with intense fruit characteristics.

    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.`

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
