    Winemaker's Notes:

    All Vavasour wines are 100% varietal and true, honest expressions of their Awatere Valley terroir. A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc flaunts a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs and tropical fruits layered with ripe stone fruit and bright citrus. The wine is crisp, balanced and elegant with a distinctive mineral note that holds up well to rich, spicy foods.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Incisive aromas of grapefruit, chili pepper, quinine, cilantro and minerals. Then sweet, ripe and creamy in the mouth, with noteworthy concentration to the grapefruit pith and exotic fruit flavors. Tactile and dusty, but the wine's stuffing is nicely cut by brisk acidity. Finishes firm and persistent. A far cry from some earlier much less ripe vintages bottled under this label.

    My daughter loved this wine. I want another bottle that has the rooster on the label.

    Strong citrus with a lovely finish. Aromas are definitely earthy with a hint of butter. This would pair nicely with Indian food. I like it. If you like citrus-y wine this one is for you.
