I have tasted this wine in Chinois Santa Monica and really enjoyed it. It is the best Marlborough 2009 I have tried so far. In my opinion the taste is a combination of currant, green apple, light fruits and some herbs tones.

Vibrant currant-leaf, citrus and gooseberry aromas, with freshly cut herb undertones. A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of archetypal currant and gooseberry flavours, that linger on the dry, clean finish.

Explosively flavorful on a razor's edge of fine acidity, a zingy panoply of green apple, passion fruit, lime and green chili pepper notes that keep breezing their way through the lively finish.

Bright and juicy, gleaming with lime-scented apple and passion fruit flavors, which echo nicely on the zingy finish. Drink now.

Seems more vegetal than last year's stunner (90 points), with green peas and bell peppers running neck and neck with the underlying stone fruits. Full-bodied and a bit chunky, which doesn't mesh as well with the herbal flavors.

Green in aroma and flavor, this is clean and refreshing; for a rustic pork pâté.

A lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc, this bottling features the classic notes of gooseberry and cut grass on the nose but in a cool, ripe register that also hints at white cranberries with crisp citrus notes. In the mouth this is a textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, zippy with lovely citrus flavors supported by bright acidity in a medium-bodied style, finishing dry with a subtle mineral note that makes this is a natural match for lighter summer fare.

Light to medium in body, but with a suggestion of oiliness to its flavors, which boast a solid core of melon and stone fruit wrapped in layers of green. Herbs and jalapeños can be sharp, but in this wine they actually finish quite easy and soft.
