Outer quote mark Intensely-flavoured sauvignon blanc with nectarine, lime, passionfruit flavours. An attractively-textured wine with a hint of sweetness that's nicely balanced by fruity acidity. Deliciously accessible but no rush Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark Fresh and intensely aromatic, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, passionfruit, kiwifruit and lime peel aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is punchy and very tasty. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and vibrancy, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2021. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very fresh and zesty Sauvignon, offering flinty and fresh passion fruit and limes and flowing to a smoothly fleshy, mango and peach palate. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Wairarapa is the name given to the south east corner of the north island. It is the home of Martinborough, one of the world's great destinations for Pinot Noir in the Southern Hemisphere, but extends northward into the wide, windswept valleys along the Wairarapa rivershed. I hadn’t given much thought to the wines from this dry, frigid area of New Zealand until I tried the 2019 Matahiwi Sauvignon Blanc. This is exquisitely crafted for its price. Cooler temperatures lead to softer aromas of green apple, elderflower and wet stone. A healthy dollop of residual sugar, puts this just shy of off-dry, and makes this wine totally effortless to drink.
