The Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2008. Single vinyard, small handpicked hillside parcels whole cluster pressed and taken to French barriques where it's fermented with indigenous yeast.Left on lees for 10 months. This wine was amazing it was different to most of the other NZ Sauvignon Blanc that I've tried (also the day I tried this Sauvignon Blanc I think I tasted close to 20-30 others) it had a great deal of complexity, fruity characters that you expect except more elegant more refined many layers and fabulous length, enough to stop myself and a collegue mid taste. I can't relay in this post just how lovely this wine actually is. This is a show stopper.
I don't often choose whites, but I was in the mood and my eye was caught by the menu line. Philadelphia's Tria Cafe mentions grapefruit and grass; they're right, and I loved the wine. Citrus, crisp finish, grassy complexity.

Very pale lemon-yellow color. Cool aromas of lime, mint, chlorophyll, white pepper and dusty herbs. Intensely flavored and fresh, with a touch of sweetness to the deep flavors of pineapple, grapefruit and mint. Not hugely long but sappy, clean and br... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
