2015 Craggy Range "Te Muna Road" Sauvignon Blanc Martinborough

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "One of our favorites from down under, and a wine we have enjoyed on lots of occasions, this is one of the few in this tasting from the North Island of New Zealand. Its growing area is a bit warmer than Marlborough on the South Island and finds a touch of extra richness while not giving up any of the bright, crisp character expected of New Zealand SBs. At the same time, it exhibits more melon and layered sophistication than most and earns high commendation for its depth and straightforwardly delightful drinkability."

2014 Momo (Seresin) Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

92 points Bob Campbell: "Dry, flavoursome and moderately gutsy Sauvignon Blanc, with green capsicum, lemongrass, gooseberry, nut and nettle flavours. The wine also shows a thread of chalky mineral character. Good food wine offering value at this price." (10/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Organic Sauvignon Blanc offers intense notes of gooseberries, freshly squeezed lemons, coriander seeds and grass. Light-bodied with tons of citrus zing in the mouth, it has a lively acid backbone and nice, long, refreshing finish. (LPB)" (2/2015) Wine Spectator: "Floral, with honeysuckle and lemon verbena notes at the core, and jui ...Read More »

2015 Elephant Hill Tempranillo Rosé Hawke's Bay

A unique little rosé made from the Spanish grape Tempranillo (plus a dash of Syrah). This grape flourishes in Hawke's Bay's moderately warm climate and dry, stony soils. It shows exotic spice, tangerine peel and lemon verbena notes. It is dry and zesty on the palate with crunchy berry fruits and plenty of stony minerals. Great persistence and mouthwatering acidity that keeps you coming back for another sip. Just a few hundred cases made in total, we got just 30 cases. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ wine buyer)

2013 Mud House Pinot Noir Marlborough

Bob Campbell: "Reasonably concentrated, vibrant Pinot Noir with raspberry, cherry and spice flavours. Slightly rustic tannins balance sweet fruit to give a moderately drying finish. Offers good value at this price." (8/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2013 Pinot Noir has ripe cherry and raspberry notes on the nose with nuances of dried herbs, lavender and fallen leaves. Light to medium-bodied, fresh and lively in the mouth with just enough fruit and rounded tannins, it finishes medium to long.

2014 Jules Taylor "OTQ" Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

95 points Bob Campbell: "Hand harvested grapes were whole-bunch pressed before being fermented and matured in old oak barrels. One of a growing number of wines showing real complexity and a great texture. Guava, grapefruit, mineral and subtle nutty flavours. A smooth-textured wine with a lengthy finish. Very impressive." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scented of white peaches, fresh apples and pears with nuances of honeysuckle and chopped herbs, the medium-bodied 2014 OTQ Series Sauvignon Blanc offers a ripe, stone fruit and spiced pear flavored version of this style, with a nicely balanced finished.

2009 Seresin "Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Biodynamic) (Previously $40)

95 points Bob Campbell: "Is this New Zealand's priciest Sauvignon? Old vine fruit was whole-bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeasts, 30% in old French oak barriques for five months. The result is an intense and complex wine with a great, mouth-filling texture. Assertive yeast and oak characters. Great food wine. It's a bold statement that moves well away from the typical Marlborough style." (11/2010) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Passion fruit and gingery oak spices on the nose, complicated by a sweaty saline character (from the wild yeasts?). Rich, ripe, tactile and sweet, with an almost g ...Read More »

2015 Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Jancis Robinson: "A little bit grassy but mostly riper flavours of stone fruit. Impressive intensity on the mid palate, not just on the attack. Fine, dry length. 17/20 points. (JH)" (5/2016) K&L Notes: Greywacke is the awesome new project from Kevin Judd. Kevin was one of the founders and winemakers behind the legendary Cloudy Bay. There isn't much this guy doesn't know about making Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
