Cairnbrae Wines Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough the Stones 2011

Member Review by barri0s1872:

a medium-bodied sauvignon blanc with great tropical notes of pineapple and mango on the nose; has a nice round body, definitely one of my more liked sauv-blancs because of its medium body

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.

Juicy, tangy style drips with citrus, passion fruit and mineral flavors that linger impressively on the finish. Drink now.

This tight, pungent sauvignon has richness and stays cool, even as the acidity in the finish seems to bleed green. Chill it for oysters.

Pale, bright color. Brisk aromas of green tropical fruits, lemon, dusty stone, peppery herbs and flowers. Lemony and penetrating; not as complex as the nose suggests but intensely flavored and varietally correct. Finishes dry and grapefruity.

Grapefruit, pineapple and essence of lime zest set against fine acidity; a wine of stunning density, yet with a lively and refreshing finish.

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

Stony on the nose, this wine is very sleek and elegant, with pineapple, peach, and hints of lemon pepper spice among the perceptions of minerality on the finish.
