90 points, Silver Medal, San Francisco International Wine Challenge 2020. Wine Enthusiast 89-90 points. "Creeping back up to the quality of 2016, before the tricky '17 and '18 vintages, this release of relatively small batch Sauvignon is a charming, fruity little number. Peach and pineapple are backed by slightly reductive, white spice notes. It's the play between freshness and texture on the palate that reels you in. Slightly creamy in the mouth, it slithers over the tongue before being lifted to freshness by bright acidity." Wine Spectator. "The majority of Marlborough sauvignon blancs are blends from several vineyards, but single-vineyard...
Hand-picked, 100% whole bunch pressed, Wild ferment, totally unfiltered, aged in French oak puncheons in the Sancerre style. This is an artisinal wine of extraordinary purity. and finesse. 94 Points “Oak fermented and matured sauvignon blanc that's as much about texture as it is about grapefruit, guava, struck flint, mineral and passionfruit flavours. An impressive wine with power and purity." Bob Campbell MW, Real Reviews. 13/5/2019 #sauv
Bob Campbell MW 95 points (equal high score for NZ sauvignon blanc) "Rich, concentrated sauvignon blanc with green capsicum, passionfruit, subtle box hedge flavours and a pleasing saline-mineral character. Good purity and mouthwatering, fruity acidity." Consistently among New Zealand's Top Rated Sauvignon Blanc wines. Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, for grown-ups. This single vineyard rendition of Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Holdaway Family vineyard at Dillons Point – our favourite sub region for the variety. It is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, being 100% tank fermented, but it offers complexity of...
Bob Campbell MW 95 points. Intense, precise sauvignon blanc with grapefruit, citrus, subtle passionfruit and a suggestion of struck flint character. A powerful wine that's long and linear, with strong varietal definition that's made more interesting with a hint of reductive character. BC. Located in Marlborough, New Zealand's premium wine growing region, Dog Point Vineyards produce wines that respect the natural integrity of the land from which they are made and, reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them. This quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is right on point with its tropical fruitiness – think guava,...
Bob Campbell MW 96 points. "Dog Point's increasingly famous Section 94 is a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc that successfully attempts to add texture and complexity to a variety more famous for its punchy fruit flavours. It's a taut, steely and slightly funky wine with impressive drive and power. This is a particularly good example - possibly the best they've made." "This ranks among the country’s greatest oak-aged Sauvignon Blancs. Proving the ageability of well-crafted Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, it is still very vigorous, with light colour, a real sense of youthful drive, and lovely depth and harmony." 5 stars, Michael Cooper. •...

The Te Awanga vineyard is situated on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The regular afternoon sea breeze is ideal for preserving lively acidity whilst still allowing for the perfect ripening of the grapes. "It's texturally attractive with lovely mid-palate weight, finishing long and refreshing" - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit AWARDS AND ACCOLADES 5 stars, 93 points -Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
100% barrel fermentation. Light golden in colour, this Sauvignon Blanc is rich, creamy and textural. It possesses ripe fruit flavours - a luscious mix of tropical and stone fruits - and balanced perfectly with fruit-laden acidity. Ripe peach, apricot and nectarine flesh aromas with delicate floral highlights. Palate is generous with luscious fruits, creamy texture and a defined finish. Well-rounded, structured and unique style. Fermented in aged barriques with wild yeast for greater complexity, using a mix of Loire and Bordeaux clones, allowed to age on lees and for partial malolactic ferment to lend it creamy texture and richness. No...
WINERY NOTES: Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc is a unique take on New Zealand’s most planted variety. Winemaker Todd Stevens pursues complex aromatics while remaining true to varietal characteristics. As with the rest of the Neudorf portfolio textural interest is a major component. In the winery we use 100% wild ferment, and this along with 20% barrel fermentation moderates the high tone nature of the variety. One the nose a bouquet of bright blossom is underpinned by fresh summer fruits. The feel across the palate is poised, succulent, bracing and sophisticated. This Sauvignon exudes restraint. It is refreshing and textural, alluring and moreish.
