95 points Bob Campbell: "A blend of wines from the Upper Awatere Valley and the TWR home block in the Wairau Valley. Quite a tight, yet textural, sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime zest, lemongrass and a seasoning of tropical fruit and passionfruit character. An appealing wine." (01/2019) 94 points Sam Kim: "This is a gorgeous rendition of the variety; offering vibrancy as well as complexity within a delightful textural mouthfeel. Fragrant aromas of Gala apple, feijoa, nectarine and lemon peel with a hint of oatmeal on the nose. The palate is concen...

95 points Bob Campbell: "Bright, fresh and concentrated sauvignon blanc with punchy regional and varietal flavours including capsicum, nettle, gooseberry, melon and subtle passionfruit. A deliciously accessible wine that delivers everything I expect from Marlborough Sauvignon … and more." (05/2018) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and powerful lemon, freshly grated ginger and Key lime notes are succulent and juicy on a smooth frame. Fresh acidity turns up the volume on the pure fruit flavors. (MW)" (09/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is heady in ...

97 points Decanter: "Our sole Sauvignon Blanc representative in the Best In Show class this year comes from Marlborough rather than any of the key Northern Hemisphere sites, but our judges loved the way in which this was not necessarily obvious from its profile. With its fresh, sappy, crushed-spring-leaf aromas and limpid, long, vinous yet tender profile in the mouth, this is simply great Sauvignon from an outstanding site rather than one of the overt or flamboyant Marlborough Sauvignons drinkers have become used to (and sometimes bored by). There's no s...

92 points Bob Campbell: "Quite a serious sauvignon with good weight and a pleasingly rich texture. A hint of tropical fruit with melon, nectarine and nutty yeast lees flavours. Dry but not austere. A good food wine. 11/5/2019" (05/2019) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Offers an appealing core of intense, lush flavors of ripe melon and peach, with details of white pepper, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit lingering on the finish. Impressive for the intensity and focus. Drink now. - MW" (09/2019) K&L Notes: #60 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2019 Found...

From the producer: "Our vineyards were harvested early to capture optimum flavour ripeness while ensuring that less natural sugar was produced to convert into alcohol in this lower alcohol wine. The fruit from each vineyard was kept separate throughout the winemaking process to ensure integrity of each site and to provide the greatest possible number of blending combinations. The fruit was gently pressed, cold settled, racked and cool fermented with selected yeast strains to enhance the unique aromatics and flavours. After fermentation, the wines remaine...

A limited bottling from one of our most popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc producers. Greywacke is the new project from acclaimed winemaker Kevin Judd who was one of the main forces behind the ascendancy of Cloudy Bay and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc as a whole! This texturally rich wine is fermented and aged in barrique, offering an intriguing alternative to the more typical stainless steel fermented style of Marlborough Savvy. The wine was slowly fermented with indigenous yeast, and the lees were occasionally stirred to further enrich the texture. Abou...

90 points James Suckling: "Super bright and vibrant with a fresh array of tangy lemons and limes. Has some tangy, crunchy resolve. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A notable value, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc features perfumed leafiness on the nose but plenty of ripe nectarine fruit on the palate. It's light to medium-bodied, plump and easy to drink, with a barely perceptible four grams per liter of sugar. (JC)" (03/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This vintage of Giesen's Sauvignon is a traditional balanced expression, but it doe...

92 points James Suckling: "A very fresh, lithe and juicy feel to this sauvignon with bright, juicy green passion fruit and green mangoes taking center stage, amid fresh, stony resolve. Drink now. " (08/2019) K&L Notes: From the winery: "The Te Muna Road Vineyard is located some seven kilometres outside of the Martinborough township. The vineyard consists of two distinct terraces; the higher comprising very old, stony clay-infused soils perfect for Pinot Noir. The lower terrace of younger stony soils interwoven with limestone provides an excellent env...

95 points Bob Campbell: "Intense, ripe Sauvignon Blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, red capsicum and guava flavours. A rich, gently tangy and deliciously accessible wine that stood out from the crowd in a tasting of 2018 wines. " (05/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "This offers a complex take on fruit-driven Sauvignon style with fresh limes and lemons, as well as peaches on offer and there’s a succulent wrap of smooth-textured fruit to close." (08/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is on the tropical end of the sp...

The palate is powerful and dynamic, displaying wonderful mid palate weight and vibrancy, leading to a persistent refined finish. It is pristine yet complex with layers of fine texture and mouth-watering flavours. At its best: now to 2028.

" (08/2019) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "In line with this biodynamic winery's attempts to reflect site and vintage as truly as possible, the 2017 Sauvignon is clearly from a cool year. Medium-gold in hue, the restrained nose is a quiet medley of citrus, tomato leaf, flint, salted nuts and toast, thanks to barrel maturation for a...

James Suckling: "A restrained, grassy nose with a central theme of limes that leads to a smoothly textured palate. Mangoes to close." (09/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "This charges out of the gate with heady aromas of lychee, pineapple and mango. There are hints of nettle and tomato leaf, but this is a fruit-led, crisp and chalky-textured wine.
