91 Points Wine Spectator:`Light and fragrant, this delivers a juicy mouthful of lemon-accented grapefruit and pear flavors, persisting nicely with a mineral note on the lively finish.`

Bold at first, with passion fruit and funky flavors, with a very clean and crisp, citrus-like finish. Embodies all my favorite characteristics of a Marlborough Sauv Blanc.

I really like Mt. Nelson! It's got some of the subtlety of good white burgundy; less citrus than many other Kiwi SBs. It's not cheap, but I've found it in the $13-15 range by shopping carefully, and once for $11 ib close out.

It seem this Italian venture is starting to hit its stride, turning in a plump, round offering layered with complexity. It starts off sweaty and pungent, then develops more melon and nectarine scents with aeration. Those flavors follow through on the palate, followed by persistent notes of white grapefruit on the finish.

Light and fragrant, this delivers a juicy mouthful of lemon-accented grapefruit and pear flavors, persisting nicely with a mineral note on the lively finish. Drink now.

Lean and focused, with vibrant lime, crushed stone and quince flavors. Grapefruit, grass and lemon blossom highlight the tart finish. Drink now.

The Antinori family (Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Tignanello, etc.) goes to New Zealand! Super Tuscan Marlborough? Hardly - the investment in Mount Nelson winery is 31 acres of all Sauvignon Blanc. Brilliant purity of color - silver gold in the glass with passion fruit and fresh herbal aromas. Silky, ripe texture with solid mineral mid-palate and a lifting, slightly grassy finish. Future plans include a reserve from older vines.
