Voss Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Voss Vineyards' Sauvignon Blanc comes from a great single vineyard in the Yountville Region of Napa Valley that was planted in 1978 and has been organically certified since 1986. Their 2013 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits classic varietal characteristics of lemon and grapefruit with hints of tropical fruits. Delightful bold fruit flavors and a crisp, lingering finish.

Voss Estate Vineyard is a family owned producer in the wine village of Martinborough - just one hour's drive from Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. Established in 1986 by Pinot noir enthusiasts Annette & Gary Voss, their highly focused approach remains hands-on, from managing the vineyards through to making and marketing the wines. In true family style, Gary’s family helped to plant the vineyard in 1988. Gary & Annette have since planted another vineyard entirely in Pinot noir to help meet the demand for Martinborough Pinot. Gary & Annette's wine producing philosophy has been to establish the brand name, “Voss Estate”, at the premium high quality end of the local and global wine market. They have been making award winning wines full of character since 1991. Gary studied wine making at Charles Sturt University in Australia and worked four vintages in New Zealand before producing wine from Voss Estate. Prior to this he spent a year working for a prestigious wine distributor to gain experience in wine sales and marketing. He also oversees the vineyards. Annette now manages sales and marketing and in her spare time tends the vineyard. Her background includes fisheries research (where she met Gary) and human resources. Read less

This is intensely aromatic with assertive aromas of cut grass, grapefruit, lime and an underlying roasted chili note. Light bodied and beautifully balanced, this is perhaps a touch softer in the mouth than I might prefer but at the same time it’s subtle and ethereal delivering finely balanced grapefruit, green chili and green cardamom spice notes on the palate and through the long finish. A bit simple perhaps but with lovely clarity and freshness.  87pts

A little smoky and decidedly grassy on the nose which is pungent and kind of precise with its fine quince and grapefruit aromas. Just a touch diffuse on entry, this is bright and tart on the palate with subtly layered flavors of green herbs, green citrus zest and ripe apple fruit. This is almost silky in the mouth and the balance makes this seem deceptively simple but this is a very complete, subtle bottle that will prove too subtle for some but for my palate this is a great summer sipper. The finish is long and sapid, with a salty edge to the lemon rind flavors. this is delicious. 89ps

A nice sauvignon blanc, if a bit one dimensional, heavy on the pink grapefruit with a little bit of herbal freshness. We had it with roast chicken and greek salad, which was a good match for the wine.

Somewhat outspoken, with melon, grass, herbs, celery, honey and citrus flavors circulating freely. An interesting melange.

This delicious 1997 Sauvignon Blanc is dominated by its distinctive mango/melony, guava-like fruit character. Crisp and medium-bodied, with a textured feel on the palate, this is a wine to drink over the next 12-18 months.

Vibrant aromas of gooseberry and passion fruit herald a fresh, fruity white wine that's downright fun to drink. The flavors are interestingly complex, with layers of grapefruit, lemon and lime that play long on the finish. Ready to drink, and more than fairly priced for this quality. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Deep straw cast. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Highly extracted. Dried herbs, pineapple, gooseberries. Markedly pungent, with forceful New Zealand-style herbal flavors. Crisp and extremely vibrant with a juicy mouthfeel and a lengthy flavorful finish. Very stylish. A great deal.

A great wine for summer! The sauvignon blanc displays a wide variety of flavors from tropical fruits to peach. A fantastic choice to pair with lighter summer foods.

Wonderful pear and peach flavors are ripe and generous, with a tangy acidity and hints of fresh herbs. The focus and intensity persist on the finish. Drink now.
