Goldwater Estate Sauvignon Blanc Wairau Valley 2007
Intensely aromatic and fragrant aromas of white peach, passionfruit and rock melon with subtle citrus giving lift. This wine displays real fruit intensity without being aggressive. Rich ripe aromas meld with herbal and citrus nuances. Crisp, mouth-feel, well balanced with an elegant, long finish
The Goldwater philosophy is simple - great wine is born in the vineyard. Careful site selection, sustainable viticultural practices and meticulous vineyard management, including innovative trellising and low yields, ensure the production of exceptionally high quality grapes. The Estate-owned Waiheke Island vineyards extend over 35 acres of free-draining clay based hillside soils and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Chardonnay.
Intense pineapple nose with hints of pink grapefruit. Fresh and very fruity. Lovely balance on the palate with crisp acidity and bags of tropical ripe fruit - nectarines and pineapple, and just a touch of greeness. Lovely stuff and a great pre-dinner aperitif

Most people don't think of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc as their first choice for a white. This one will show you how good their wines really are! The zingy grapefruit and lemon flavors, combined with a touch of melon, balance well with the minerally finish and tremendous depth of this wine. Drink it with a well prepared lobster or shrimp gumbo.
At first pour you notice a delicate straw color that will remind you of sunshine on a cool spring morning. Crisp, dry and delicate, yet powerful and packed with flavors of grapefruit, melon and lemon-lime, this wine is potent enough to accompany ever the richest seafood.
Goldwater's 1999 Sauvignon Blanc displays elegant floral and citrus fruit aromas. This full-flavored, medium-bodied, and extremely well-balanced wine offers focused grapefruit, passion fruit, and lemon-lime flavors in its persistent personality. It admirably combines New Zealand's characteristic in-your-face Sauvignon flavors with a degree of refinement. Drink it over the next two years.
Tart, citrusy and floral, this is a nice example of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc that's jazzy, harmonious and appealing early on.
Fresh and lively describe this young New Zealand white, offering up bright apple, nectarine and citrus flavors that linger enticingly on the racy finish. Yummy now.
