Aged for 8 months on fine lees with a regular stirring done in French oak barrles one third of which is renewed every year. Pale yellow in colour with hints of green. Intense fruity nose strong in citrus. The attack is sharp. Good volume on the palate with a good length. The finish is fruity freeing peach flavours and woody notes.
Te Mata Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Palest lemon green, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’17 is all about texture, refreshment and refinement. Grapefruit and lime juice on the nose, with notes of white flowers, quince and cardamom, the wine expands into fennel, currants, elderflower, pears, honey and sweet nectarine on the palate. Ripe sub-tropical fruit is balanced by a long, dry finish with a crisp edge and floral, delicate lift.
Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2016
"Helen has worked very hard at making a style that is suited to her fruit and the district, giving a point of difference to the passionfruity thiol-monsters of the 2016 Marlborough vintage. Elegance, freshness of fruit, more methoxypyrazine gooseberry fruit, bright acidity and delicate textures were the aim, and for this, she’s used some skin contact and 30% in barrel. Very pale straw. The nose is tight and elegant with ripe yellow stonefruits and green stonefruits, and no tropical fruit. On palate crisp and steely with a slippery mouthfeel. Gooseberry fruit with subtle textures and detail. But the fruit and freshness prevail. It’s a more slender wine than some of the worked examples made elsewhere." – Raymond Chan
Pleasant Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Very few cases remaining of this lovely and excellent value Sav/Blanc, when it came to the crunch and the all important value for money it delivers hands down. Not just your usual grassy, semi-sweet run of the mill Sav/Blanc but a wine that truly captures the essence of Marlborough, lovely acidity, pungent with beautiful middle palate and concentration, very clean and generous also full body, classic Marlborough really. At $16.95 per bottle it is hard to pass considering the quality of many commercial ones on the same price bracket.
Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018
A nose of soft citrus, elderflower, white currants, lemongrass and a hint of nettle and dewy forest leaves. A creamy Sauvignon Blanc, deeply elegant and satisfying from the ripe entry through to the final flourish of minerality. Aromatic with a nice fruit burst in the mid-palate to carry the wine through. In the vineyards and winery we are constantly pushing Sauvignon Blanc into shape to define it as a fine wine, rather than a refreshing beverage. We want a wine with texture. A wine which is complex and satisfying rather than a simple expression of fruit.
Awapuni Point Sauvignon Blanc 2016

With a little aging, this Sauvignon Blanc is becoming better and better. The 2016 vintage is perhaps the best up to date, it offers lush gooseberry fruit, lychee and green asparagus but it also has depth and length with good concentration and nerve. Made exclusively for Accent On Wine, at this price will give a lot of other Sauvignon Blanc at $20 a run for their money. Drinking very well now but will also cellar for another 2 years. Drink it with mussels, prawns or any shellfish.
