Bob Campbell 95 points (equal top rating for Sauvignon Blanc) 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 texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit are captured alongside the subtlest hint of oyster-shell. This wine is focused and explosive on both nose and palate yet remains elegantly balanced and distinctly salty.
The latest 2019 release has hit that 95 point mark again with Bob Campbell calling it “Impressive sauvignon blanc…An ethereal, aromatic wine with impressive purity”. There are Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs and then there’s Cloudy Bay, arguably one of New Zealand’s greatest exports and a benchmark for quality. The nose takes you by surprise with an aromatic array of stone- fruits, an abundance of citrus and just a hint of jasmine. These notes are carried through to the palate alongside fresh lemon and intensely scented gooseberry. This is a well-balanced and exceptionally moreish wine. It might sound strange to age Marlborough...
An iconic wine from New Zealand's most iconic winery. Atypical for Kiwi Sauvignon, the Te Koko is fermented using indigenous 'wild' yeasts, and subjected to batonnage as it ages in oak. Released as a three year old wine, this is unlike anything else from New Zealand! Lychees and almonds with classic gooseberry notes and a hint of wood smoke. A full bodied palate of citrus fruits with the richer flavours of caramel and nougat, leading to a crisp yet spicy finish. Able to age for up to ten years, this wine is an ideal partner to tuna, oysters and poached fish.
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 South Pacific Ocean neighbouring our Te Awanga Estate vineyard is the inspiration for growing of our 'Sea' wines.

Aging 50% fermented in French oak barrique, 50% in stainless steel tank. 4 months on lees .

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
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.
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.
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." WINERY NOTES: Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc has a delightfully fragrant and complex bouquet with underlying citrus aromas. Single-vineyard sourcing allows the terroir its full expression and...
