    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.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir is endowed with a fabulous, mineral-rich nose, superbly defined with touches of strawberry and boysenberry, the palate very concentrated yet very well-defined with vibrant acidity, ebullient red-berried fruits and a svelte, silky, sophisticated finish. Its quality shines through this lovely wine that should drink over 3-5 years. This is another icon of New Zealand, whose wines helped put their Pinot Noir on the international map.--Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    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.

    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.

    Showing bright fruit on the nose, uplifted red and black cherry notes and elegant tannins, this wine has an inviting bouquet that leads you in to a supple well rounded palate. The wine and oak tannins are well integrated, forming a platform to display the wonderful cherry fruit notes with hints of liquorice and allspice.

    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.?
