    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 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.`

    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.

    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.

    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: 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.

    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.

    An intriguing wine which captures the elegance and finesse of Pinot Noir. The wine evolves in the glass, revealing a harmony of fruit purity and savoury complexity - rich plum and cherry characters with hints of wild thyme and mushrooms. The generous flavours are supported by soft, silky tannins.

    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.?
