Focused and ripe, with outstanding intensity to lime juice, guava, grapefruit and stone fruit flavors, wrapped with pointed minerality and lingering sweet pea notes. Drink now.
Sourced from the Awatare and Wairau Valleys (50/50). Fresh green fruit on the nose: apple with a touch of lime and gooseberry. Very clean. Light, fresh and elegant on the palate. Simple, well crafted commercial Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. Tasted January 2008.
From a vintage of balanced weather, the 2004 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits excellent ripeness in its rich pear, apple, talcum powder, and gooseberry aromas. Medium to full-bodied, ample, and satin-textured, this wonderful value bastes the taster's palate with waves of lush spiced gooseberries whose effects linger in its long, seamless finish.
Bright apples and tropical fruit balanced with the flavors of gooseberry and green grass so typical of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely aromas of limestone and cool, fresh fruit lead you in. Very clear and vibrant.
Boisterous aromas of gooseberries are found in the nose of the 2002 Sauvignon Blanc. It is rich, highly expressive, satin-textured, and well-balanced. Loads of tangy melon, gooseberry, and spice flavors make up its medium-bodied personality. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 years.
Reticent nose hints at grapefruit and spices. Supple and round, but with a firm edge to the fresh lime and grapefruit flavors. The lemony finish shows good breadth and subtle sweetness.
Aromas of gooseberry, white grapefruit, tangerine and peppery spices. Pungent, brisk and juicy, with white grapefruit and white pepper flavors nicely firmed by lemony acidity. Not especially complex but fresh and fairly intense.
A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc flaunts a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs, tropical fruits and bright citrus. Ripe stone fruit flavours and a distinct minerality hold up well to rich, spicy foods.
