This shows very good intensity to lime, dried clay and grass flavors. Salt and oyster shell undertones linger on the grapefruit finish. Drink now. Read more

External Reviews for Cairnbrae Wines Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough the Stones
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.
A relatively new winery, Cairnbrae Vineyards has been producing some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc since 1992. The warm, sunny days and cool nights result in wines that are bright and lively, full of floral and citrus flavors. The presence of gravel in the fertile soil (hence "The Stones") gives the wine amazing minerality, adding balance to the lush fruit flavors. The relatively high acidity adds structure and gives way to a clean, crisp finish. With loads of grapefruit and mineral notes, this is the perfect wine to drink while watching the leaves change color and enjoying a salad or other lighter fare.
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.
"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.
Grapefruit, pineapple and essence of lime zest set against fine acidity; a wine of stunning density, yet with a lively and refreshing finish.
This tight, pungent sauvignon has richness and stays cool, even as the acidity in the finish seems to bleed green. Chill it for oysters.
