Sauvignon on Snooth

  • Two Rivers Convergence Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

    Snoothrank:

    Distinctly full of vegetal aromas, particularly cut grass which is accented by notes of sweet peas and asparagus. Vibrant and succulent. A bit of sweet pea on entry followed by rather peachy, ripe fruit. Good acid backbone refreshes the palate. A bit of green fruit on the back end, with a nice finish. A solid showing in a rather vegetal register... Read More

  • Craggy Range Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Avery Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh on the nose with typical slightly spicy, floral, grapefruit and lightly vegetal set of aromatics. Moderately rich on entry with nice fruit; clean, crisp and refreshing. Nice cool pineapple and gooseberry fruit. Grapefruit pith on the tight finish turns more complex and less profusely aromatic with time in the glass. 89pts Read More

  • Tupari Sauvignon Blanc Awatere Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Vegetal on the nose with a base of lemon verbena accented by thin asparagus and green pepper notes. Round, lush and juicy on the palate. Lovely texture. This has fine focus, melon and lime oil notes. Zesty, tight, assertive and stern finish. Citrus pith and stones, good length, almost subtle and nicely detailed. 89pts Read More

  • Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Dashwood 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A big roasted pepper character on the nose thats both grassy and vegetal while remaining lively and freshly citrussy. Bright, lean and mineral on the palate with nice cut and a sweet edge of green kiwi fruit up front. Rather complete with nice length. Ripe, rich and zesty. 89pts Read More

  • Highfield Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Intense and very citrussy on the nose with almost a hint of creaminess. This is spicy on the nose with some grass, passion fruit and a little guava exoticism. Fine tension on entry with citrussy, integrated acids, clarity from dryness and cut green fruit. Really very fine, delicate texture and acid zest with a hint of minerality that washes the ...

  • Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc Nelson 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Kiwi at first and then almost apricot, with pear and white orchard fruits covered with lime leaf and grapefruit pith notes. Super bright and very fine on entry with very clear grapefruit and passion fruit flavors. Fine acid adds length with a little old wood here adding roundness. Theres a nice return on the finale of pithy though sweet fruit. ... Read More

  • Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Pioneer Block 18 Snap Block 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty on the nose with floral, vegetal notes that recall lemon grass and sweaty flowers. This has a great texture. Silky and bright with juicy Meyer lemon fruit on the entry followed by potassium minerality. The palate delivers layers of apple, passion fruit and citrus notes that are perfumed on the long, crisp finish, ending with a lovely pith... Read More

  • Johner Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Kiwi, fig and melon yield a rather fruity nose but not in the green end of the spectrum, with hints of smoke and green tomato. Bright and ripe but with huge acid cut, nice richness. Zesty, deep finish, succulent and complex with a hint of fig on the finale, along with a green spice. Spicy gooseberry finish. 90pts Read More

  • Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Section 94 Single Vineyard 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very complex on the nose with notes of smoky flint, dried chili, roast chili, a hint of sulfur, and more vegetal notes. A bit of green bean, green pea. This is a very broad and soft vintage for Section 94, lacking some of the firmness of previous vintages but making up for it with a round, almost lush mouth-feel. The flavors here are mostly orch...

  • Trinity Hill Sauvignon Blanc Hawke's Bay New Zealand Screwcap 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fragrant, spiced green fruit with gooseberry. Lightly herbal on the nose with a bit of melon and fig, then pure and intense passion fruit and grapefruit aromas. Tense on the palate, much more so than the nose would lead you to believe. Fine bright fruit, green apple, green plum, gooseberry and pineapple all wrapped up in lovely refreshing feel.... Read More
