    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1996 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1997

    Pale straw green in color and enticingly fragrant, the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc offers lifted aromas of ripe stonefruit and juicy citrus with underlying notes of blackcurrant leaf and tomato plant spice. The palate is fine yet succulent, with zesty citrus flavours and fresh acidity. There is an appealing plushness about this wine especially as it leads into a lingering and characteristically crisp finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Focused and pure, offering a tangy expression of balanced lemon, white peach, tangerine, passion fruit, melon and green tea notes. This is powerful in its persistence and juiciness, yet maintains an air of elegance. Drink now. 30,000 cases imported.

    The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc offers intense notes of gooseberries, passion fruit, grapefruit zest and grass with a hint of fresh herbs. Crisp, dry and medium bodied with a good concentration of grapefruit and herb flavors, it gives a long tropical fruit laced finish. Delicious now, it should remain fresh through 2013.

    This Marlborough classic remains on form, artfully blending pineapple and crushed tomato leaf notes. If it’s a bit leaner than some examples from the region, it’s also more elegant and refined; less explosive and flamboyant, but tighter and more focused.

    Green-tinged yellow. Good dusty, spicy lift to the ripe, inviting aromas of orange pith, grapefruit and minerals. Broad, supple and ripe, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the sexy soft citrus, tropical fruit and dusty herb flavors. Easygoing for this bottling, conveying very good but not outstanding grip. Finishes pure and persistent, with a slight narrowing at the end.
