Bob Campbell MW 91 points. Wine Spectator 90 points. "Passionfruit, guava and citrus flavors are succulent and intense, with hints of white flowers on a supple and juicy frame. Shows lime zest and candied ginger notes on the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. MaryAnn Worobiec Issue Date: Jul 31, 2021.
Wine Advocate 93 points. Winemaker Helen Masters builds complexity into the 2019 Te Wa Sauvignon Blanc by incorporating some skin contact (15%), a good bit of barrel fermentation and aging (40%), some malolactic, and indigenous ferments throughout. The impressive result offers up scents of orange marmalade, nectarines and gooseberries, while the medium-bodied palate is unusually silky for Sauvignon Blanc, gliding easily into a long, textural finish. To Masters's great credit, all of the parts come together harmoniously, with none of the individual aspects sticking out. JC Jun 2021. Cameron Douglas MS 92 points. Bright and expressive nose...
94/100 Bob Campbell MW "Bright, tangy yet pleasingly textural sauvignon blanc with nectarine, citrus-lemon, pineapple, wildflowers, spice and anise characters. A rich and quite complex wine with an impressively lengthy finish. 26 FEB 2020." Drink 2020 - 2024
95 Points - "Concentrated, flavoursome sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, guava, feijoa and grapefruit characters supported by fruity acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. A classy wine from a top vintage and low-yielding vines." Bob Campbell MW 01/09/2021. 95 Points 'Top 60 New Release Wines' - "Captivating combination of red grapefruit, cucumber, fresh basil and fennel on the nose leads to an impressive citrus-infused palate, the chalky, saline acidity running right through to a crunchy, bone dry finish. Very impressive indeed." Gourmet Traveller WINE - Jane Skilton MW Dec/Jan 2021/22 5 Stars - "Grown at Dillons Point, in the lower...
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 95 points. A complex full bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky minerality and fresh herbal influence, complimented by a vibrant acidity which gives the wine focus. Suggested food matches for Section 94 include fish (particularly salmon), poultry and soft white cheeses. This single vineyard parcel is situated within the Dog Point Vineyard, using the same low cropping level from vines planted in 1992. Fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled without fining.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points. WINERY NOTE: We produce a classic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Fruit is hand-picked early in the season to retain the fresh crisp acidity that is so much a part of the Marlborough style. We add additional complexity at the Winery by aging a portion of the wine in old French barrels, adding weight and texture to the final wine. Our Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly, exhibiting intense varietal aromas well supported by richness and palate weight. Winemaking This certified organic Sauvignon Blanc, was 100% hand-picked, whole bunch pressed straight to tank and fermented to bone dry. Tasting notes This ripe...
Sydney IWC 2020 – Blue-Gold medal. Lovely ripe passionfruit aromas are complemented with green grass and lime notes. The palate is light and fresh with delicious citrus notes and a chalky, crisp finish. Cellaring Delicious now but will continue to develop in bottle, highlighting the minerality of this wine. Enjoy over the next couple of years.
94/100 Bob Campbell MW "Tiritiri is a new brand for Neudorf. Tiritiri is Te Reo meaning to cultivate or grow. Tirtiri sits under the Estate label, is made from grower grapes and is not necessarily made from organic grapes or grapes grown on the Waimea Plains. It's worth noting that the previous vintage of this wine was grown on the Waimea Plains and had the same recommended retail price. Nonetheless, the revised branding does draw a rather clearer line in the sand. A serious rather than showy sauvignon (always looking for alliteration opportunities) with concentrated melon, apple and citrus flavours that dominate an array of more subtle...
