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.
Cameron Douglas MS 92 points. Bright and expressive nose with tropical notes of pineapple and mango. The palate is filled with fresh passionfruit and has vibrancy and texture that leads to a dry finish. Individual parcels of fruit were destemmed and fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks, using various combinations of selected yeasts. Two parcels of late harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed to barrel for wild fermentation.
96 Points - Outstanding "Immediately complex and enticing bouquet with aromas of the variety with a deep core of savoury complexity, lees and barrel ferment derived scents. Aromas of honeysuckle and grapefruit, some tropical fruit, wild flowers, sage and fresh herbs, hay and silty soil minerality. Fantastic on the palate with textures and flavours of complexity, variety, soil and palate tension - with amazing salty acidity, hold, release and finish. What’s not to like! Best drinking upon purchase and through 2028+." Cameron Douglas MS June 2021. 95 Points & Wine of the Week / Top-Rank Wine “Made with 100% wild yeast fermentation in...
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 Winemaker's Notes: 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...
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,...
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...
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...
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.
93/100 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...
