Perhaps the most exciting NZ SB I've tasted this year this wine snaps, crackles, and pops with life. The aromas absolutely bowl you over--citrus, gooseberry, flowers. The intriguing floral note in the wine's aromas carries through in the palate, which is resoundingly tart and fresh, tingling over your tongue. A deeper, blood orange note creeps into the finish. Exceptionally good, so refreshing, and restores lagging faith in NZ SB. Excellent QPR--worth the $17.50.

The color is identical to 2007, pale yellow with just a touch of green. On the nose there is that familiar scent of green apple along with honey and clover and just a touch of wood. On the palate there is that green apple and passion fruit and the honey and oak remain. Like I mentioned before, there is just less of it. If I hadn’t been tasting these two wines side by side, I may not have even noticed it. There is still a bright acidity associated with this wine.

Winemaker's notes: Light yellow in color, with greenish hues. Brilliant clarity. A bouquet of citrus zest, gooseberry and passion fruit. Drylands Sauvignon Blanc displays rich, ripe flavors of ruby grapefruit and passion fruit with herbal overtones. The palate has superb weight and complexity, lingering in a crisp, refreshing finish.

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.

The exotic fruits on the initial taste is overbearing.

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

Aggressively 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.

Focused and very intense, with a lively array of grass, lime, grapefruit and stone flavors. Citrus acidity hones the finish. Drink now.

Bright and concentrated, showing vibrant, focused green berry and herbal aromas and flavors, which echo with a touch of lime on the finish. Drink now.

Exuberantly fragrant, bursting with luscious gooseberry, passion fruit, grass and grapefruit flavors. Concentrated, almost oily, with lingering citrus tanginess and mineral nuances. Drink now.

Pale, bright yellow. Lemon, fresh herbs and pepper on the nose. Broad, supple and nicely filled in, with good intensity to the slightly sweaty pepper and saline flavors; I picked up a hint of horseradish. No shortage of personality here. Finishes with good persistence.
