Winestate Magazine 97 points. Aroma: Classic sauvignon blanc aromas with appetizing tropical fruit and minerality. A delightfully fragrant and complex bouquet. Palate: Bright, juicy, and elegant with refined acidity and ripe flavors. Good concentration and length on the palate, excellent structure, and a well-balanced finish. Winemaker’s Comments: Grape yields were back to higher yields this vintage and our vineyard location in the Lower Wairau allowed for later ripening that benefitted from stunning late harvest weather, escaping the botrytis that impacted some vineyards. Our single-vineyard sourcing gives Ten Sisters a rare purity of...
"Sancerre style". VINOUS MAGAZINE....96 points....BEST NZ SAUVIGNON BLANC. The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Abstract Three Rows is a pure and sophisticated wine from, true to its name, three rows of a dry farmed parcel. It is bright and tangy yet savory. The fruit is pure and delicate, like a cloud. It is transparent and yet expansive in the mouth, having no heaviness. Light honey, nectarine, musky boxwood and oatmeal flavors abound with a light creamy character. Sensitive Sauvignon. Rebecca Gibb MW , Vinous. 95 Points - "From the Dillons Point sub-region. Fermented and aged for 14 months in five-year-old French oak...

"Vibrant lime elderflower fill the nose with their citric and floral intensity. Air allows tropical fruit notes to show. The palate adds wonderfully vivid nettle and ripe passion fruit notes on a concentrated and beautifully textured body. The finish is full of fruit and total refreshment." - 92/100, Falstaff.
James Suckling 93 Nettles, thyme, green apples and grapefruit on the nose. Medium-bodied, sharp and clean cut with a refreshing core of citrus and green fruit. Vivid. From organically grown grapes. Pale straw. A pure expression of Dog Point Sauvignon with lifted aromatics of granny smith apple, lemon rind as well as ﬂoral tones of orange blossoms and elderﬂower burst from the glass. Bright citrus ﬂavors from an elegant year, followed by saline acidity washing across the palate, leaving subtle tropical tones unfurling on the ﬁnish. ~Winery Notes
100% barrel fermentation. Certified Organic. Truly unique style of Sauvignon Blanc for New Zealand ! In our vineyard we grow two rare clones of Sauvignon Blanc ( 376 and 530 ), originally taken from the Loire Valley. This is very different from the rest of New Zealand, which generally uses a singular Bordeaux clone. Our vines produce much smaller bunches with golden coloured grapes - the Bordeaux tends to a heavier bunch size and more green tinged. These grapes give us beautiful fruit flavours of golden kiwifruit, mango, ripe pineapple and guava. 93 Points - Excellent - Cameron Douglas MS. "Many of the classic aromas of this...
