Cairnbrae Wines Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough the Stones 2008
External Reviews for Cairnbrae Wines Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough the Stones
Grapefruit, pineapple and essence of lime zest set against fine acidity; a wine of stunning density, yet with a lively and refreshing finish.
Brisk, aromatic and generous with its gooseberry flavors at the core, shaded with lime and currant leaf notes that linger in the finish. Drink now.
A wine that comes alive in your glass with scents of lemon pepper and fresh-cut herbs, a luscious palate of grapefruit and passion fruit, and its trademark minerality and snappy acidity.
"The Stones" is right! This is a minerally marvel, like drinking passion fruit nectar from a limestone cup. Or, maybe like drinking limestone nectar from a passion fruit cup. Whatever it's like, you'll be happy to have it in your favorite cup.
Fresh, racy and fruity, this is a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit are prominent, and complemented by flavors of lemon grass and wet slate. The wine finishes clean with palate cleansing acidity.
This shows very good intensity to lime, dried clay and grass flavors. Salt and oyster shell undertones linger on the grapefruit finish. Drink now.
Juicy, tangy style drips with citrus, passion fruit and mineral flavors that linger impressively on the finish. Drink now.
