This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with a fruit-salad-bowl of flavors including ripe gooseberry, passionfruit, fresh citrus lime and exotic
herbaceous aromas. The wine has an exciting palate with layers of juicy flavors, intensity and fullness, finishing with a refreshing crisp, clean and racy acidity. Enjoy this exuberant and delightful wine.
Enjoy now and until 2011.

Pale bright yellow. Pungent aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass and gooseberry: classic Marlborough sauvignon. Concentrated, tactile and aromatic in the mouth, with firm acid backbone cutting the fruit sweetness. Finishes subtle and persistent. An excellent basic bottling.
The Wine Advocate
The 2009 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc has more complexity on the nose than the regular Sauvignon Blanc bottling: a touch more of the Marlborough sub-tropical fruit complementing scents of gooseberry and Granny Smith. The palate is well balanced with vibrant apple and kiwi fruit flavors, then touches of passion fruit and peach towards the finish. This is a good value Kiwi Sauvignon and comes highly recommended.
