An intensely perfumed wine with notes of white flowers, honey, white peach and soft meyer lemon notes. Not herbal/grassy. Very slight notes of acetone or cats pee. More of the same on the palate with good length and subtle minerality. Light and refreshing. I am not convinced that I like this vintage as much as previous vintages.

Decent Marlborough sauvignon blanc with loads of white grapefruit, lemon, and unripe peach. Nice floral nose, nice acidity and a decent finish.

Nose of grapefruit and stone with orange blossom, apricot and just-mown grass. Balanced on the palate with tropical influence of passionfruit and apple and grapefruit. Rich texture. Crisp finish. 88 pts. 1/12/13

A bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and zesty.

For a wine with such a large volume (over half a million cases were imported to the U.S.), the quality is admirable. Passion fruit and grapefruit elements dominate, while some grassier notes emerge as the wine sits in the glass, resulting in a pleasant blend of tropical and herbal notes. It’s plump on the midpalate, then gains focus on the lengthy, mouthwatering finish.

A fragrant, spicy mix of peach, apricot and citrus flavors, with vibrant acidity and plenty of grapefruit zest nuances on the finish. Drink now.

Tongue-gripping acidity with loads of citrus flavors. Peach and nectarine flavors round out the citrus. Grassy undertones. Finishes long and dry.

Winemaker's Notes:

These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough9s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to fifteen years bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavour. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavours and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, crisp acidity and complexity of this stunning wine.
