    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.`

    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.

    The Sherwood Estate 2006 Pinot Noir displays dark plum aromas on the nose supported by gentle oak handling. The palate is round and full with a persistent finish. An excellent match for most dishes.

    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

    This wine exhibits a lovely mix of red and black berry fruits with further complexity gained from oak spice. The wine has a sweet berry entry which displays these same characters in abundance. Tannins rise gracefully out of the mid-palate to finish the wine; these are balanced by the wines natural acidity and fruit, to produce a long fruit-driven finish.

    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.

    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.`

    Wine Spectator: `This is fragrant, with very good intensity to passion fruit, jasmine and guava nuances. Grass, savory herb and fleshy peach flavors carry through the finish, with briny undertones. Drink now. 16,000 cases made. Wine Enthusiast: ?Typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, pairing ripe, honeyed stone-fruit flavors with slightly grassy, herbal notes. It?s softer and lusher than many of its competitors, with less biting acidity and a soft, mouthwatering finish.`
