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.
Cameron Douglas MW 94 points. Few people think Sauvignon Blanc when they think Martinborough, but the few producers who focus on it make some pretty sensational wines almost every year. Ata Rangi makes a highly textural style with clean, gentle acid and a nice leesy, creamy texture. Freshly packaged in a brand new bottle, with the truly befitting name of "Raranga" which means 'woven' in Maori, it is layers upon layers of attraction all balanced together perfectly. An outstanding wine in anyone's language, it's partially barrel fermented and will develop nicely over the first 5 years from vintage. Smells Kiwifruit, lime, flint and a hint of...
Hand-picked, 100% whole bunch pressed, Wild ferment, totally unfiltered, aged in Freanch oak puncheons. 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
Bob Campbell MW 94 points. Single vineyard Marlborough. "Bone-dry sauvignon blanc, with impressive purity and pronounced oyster shell, mineral flavours together with gooseberry, grapefruit and citrus. Quite a textural wine with good weight and mouth-feel. 16/7/2018” 94 Points BC. WINERY NOTE: 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....
This is the 34th vintage of New Zealand’s iconic Sauvignon Blanc. Brilliant water like colour with a distinctive tinge of green to the edgings. Uplifted gooseberry, passionfruit and citrus aromas meld into fresh lime, herbaceous grassy characters and subtle asparagus notes. Intense ripe gooseberry, passionfruit and citrus flavours line the palate with elements of grassy asparagus characters and fresh herbs also apparent. Dry crisp finish. Excellent persistence with a lingering aftertaste of ripe gooseberries, citrus, passionfruit, lime and herbaceous grassy characters.
Our version of the classic aromatic Marlborough style of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapes are hand-picked from eight of our own vineyards within the Wairau Valley. Cropped at an average of 7.5 tonnes/hectare (50hl/ha). The fruit is whole bunch pressed, cold settled before fermentation and 2-3 months aging in stainless steel tanks. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeast. Bottled without fining. REVIEWS 93 Points - James Suckling Pungent passion fruit and fragrant melon, Tahitian lime citrus, this really takes sauvignon to another place for Marlborough, exposing the edgy, exciting and minerally possibilities whilst embracing the...
97 Points Stuart McCloskey "Dog Point's Section 94 has always been a favourite of mine and can, in correct cellaring conditions, mature wonderfully over a decade. This is another example of a medium to full-bodied, textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes for Section 94 come from a single, low cropping vineyard parcel first planted in 1992. The fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Every vintage has a funky edge which you either love or not. Those seeking simplistic Kiwi fruit pops should avoid at all costs as this is a serious, large scale wine that deserves a little respect. The...
Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. “Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, very light edged. The nose is very elegant in proportion with fresh aromas of passionfruit with soft notes of fresh herbs, snow peas and cut grass. Dry to taste, the palate has a vibrant and zesty heart of passionfruit, cut grass and fresh herb flavours. The mouthfeel is refreshing and bright with fresh acidity and a core that flows along a fine-textured line. This has good linearity, and the wine carries to a lingering finish of passionfruit, herbs and grass. This is a lively and bright passionfruit, herb and cut-grass flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and good...
Sam Kim Wine Orbit 91 points. Brightly fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, green apple and lemon peel characters, leading to a lively palate that is succulent and flavoursome. The wine offers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, finishing long and very tasty.
