Critic Scores & reviews

  • Cameron Douglas MS

    94
    "Vibrant, tropical fruits, fresh citrus, sage and basil, mineral salts and fresh saline air present a wine of quality and detail. Plush and fresh, salivating and delicious on the palate. A wine that ticks all the boxes of freshness, texture, minerality, power and fruit. Balanced and well made with a lengthy finish."
  • Sam Kim

    "It's gorgeously appealing on the nose showing green rockmelon, feijoa, kaffir lime and white floral aromas, followed by a richly flavoursome palate that's succulent and lingering. Fabulously pure and vibrant with a lingering delicious finish."
  • Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

    "Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green sheen. The nose is softly full and elegantly presented, with aromas of passionfruit, citrus intermixed tomato vines, elderflower and sage. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of saline overlying passionfruit, lime and grapefruit, tomato vines, sage and elderflower. Fine-textured phenolics veil the palate in silk; thirst-quenching acidity enlivens the palate and lends a refreshing finish. This refined Sauvignon Blanc shows varietal and polished mouthfeel. Match with blue cod and steamed mussels."

    "There's a nice complexity to the aromas profile here with notes of elderflowers, lime zest, pineapple, fennel and lemongrass. Medium-bodied, fresh and succulent."

Locations

New Zealand

The New Zealand wine industry is one of the younger wine regions in the world, whose popularity grew immensely when Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc hit the world wine scene, quite unique in style when compared to the typical French Sancerre.

Wine is successfully cultivated on both the North and South islands from a latitude of 36 degrees in the North to 45 degrees for the most southerly wine region in the world, the South Island's Central Otago. The majority of regions are located in free-draining alluvial valleys except for Waiheke Island and Kawarau Gorge in Central Otago and benefit from the moderating effect of the maritime climate as no vineyard is more than 80 miles from the ocean. With plentiful sunshine hours and cool evening sea breezes, the grapes thrive.

Sauvignon Blanc is the major white variety people will think of when you mention New Zealand Whites, however fantastic Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and less commonly Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir is the most widely planted red variety in New Zealand although Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot (Bordeaux Blends), Syrah are also grown and in even smaller amounts, Tempranillo and Montepulcianos can too be found. Sparkling wines of very high standards are also made in New Zealand.

The key wine regions in New Zealand include Auckland, Canterbury, Central Otago, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Nelson.

Marlborough

When it comes to New Zealand wine, the first thought that often comes to mind is Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This varietal has played a key role in propelling New Zealand onto the world wine stage.

Located in the northern part of the South Island, the region is centered around the town of Blenheim. In the past, the area was primarily used for sheep farming, but that all changed when Montana Wines planted their first vines in 1973. At the time, many believed the region was "too far south to grow good wine," but Marlborough proved them wrong. Although Central Otago has since claimed the title of the southernmost wine region in the country, Marlborough remains one of the most renowned.

The region boasts plenty of sunshine hours, relatively low rainfall, and cool temperatures, creating ideal conditions for producing world-class Sauvignon Blanc. Other white varieties grown in the region include Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Sparkling wines. While Pinot Noir is the dominant red variety grown in the region, it is typically lighter-bodied than those produced in Central Otago or Martinborough.
