    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has a great range of aromas and flavors that seem to change and evolve in the glass. We get citrus, crushed herbs and a distinctive gooseberry lift with green notes reminiscent of fresh pea pods but also a sweet leafy boxwood aroma. On the palate there are flavors of grapefruit and red capsicum where mid palate fruit sweetness is balanced by a fresh, lively citrus acidity.

    Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine and terrific for appetizers such as artichoke dip, veggie dishes or dips, garlic or Italian seasonings in creamy sauces, fragrant salads, like Greek, caesar or garden, Thai food, fish (sushi), poultry and so much more.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc offers pronounced notes of gooseberries, lemon juice and apple slices over hints of fresh grass. Medium bodied, it gives a good concentration of vibrant citrus and gooseberry flavors with crisp acidity and a long zesty finish. This is textbook Marlborough Sauvignon. Drinking now, it should remain fresh through 2013.

    The Wine Advocate

    Relatively light bodied, this Sauvignon Blanc has pungent aromas of crushed tomato leaf and nettles. It's a green style from start to finish, capped off by lime-like acids.
