Pale yellow with slightly greenish tinge. As soon as the glass gets near your nose, the little hairs start to curl with the tartness coming from the glass. Green apple and chalk along with the barest whiff of honey are sensed upon the nose. On the palate that tartness of green apple is there but the sense of passion fruit is strong along with a touch of oak. There is a bright acidity that doesn’t linger at all. All the scents and flavors in this wine are very intense and they haven’t lessened over the years. This is great wine to pair with seafood, especially flavors like halibut or cod.

This is a pretty interesting wine. It's crisp and herbaceous. Green pepper, gooseberries, melon, grass, think green. It's also quite fresh in the way biting into a fresh vegetable would be. While light and drinkable, the short acidic finish is slightly jarring.

Great example of the Marlborough Sav. Blanc. I prefer this over the Kim Crawford that had been a favorite of mine (disclaimer I drink mostly reds). For once the winemaker's notes seem one target although I'd start with citrus and lead to peach instead of the grasses

Great wine. Nice nose of passion fruit. In my opinion a great cost/benefit ratio.

Had a bottle of 2007 (in Aug 2011) which I'd expected to be past its prime. Was very good; not the best Marlborough SB that I've had but was pleasantly surprised given its age.

Sauvignon Blanc 2007 - Drylands : Sauvignon Blanc 2007 - Weißwein von DrylandsDer Wein schimmert hellgelb und grünliche Farbreflexe durchziehen die Farbe im Glas. Das herrlich klare Bukett wird von Stachelbeeren und Passionsfrüchten dominiert. Der Sauvignon Blanc 2007 von Drylands präsentiert sich reichhaltig und mit Aromen tropischer Früchte und kräutrigen Noten. Am Gaumen wirkt er sehr komplex und wird von einem erfrischenden, knusprigen Finale gekrönt.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 91Agressively pungent and herbal without being over the top, this is Sauvignon Blanc that screams of its origins. Grapefruit and passion fruit flavors wash easily across the palate, leaving plenty of grassy herbaceousness in their wake, and a crisp, lingering finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Light straw, greenish tint,with aromas of Lemon-lime, gooseberry, grass and pineapple. Light-bodied, the lime, grapefruit and peach flavors in the mouth finish dry and clean.
