A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc flaunts a powerful bouquet of tropical fruits layered with grapefruit and melon. The wine is crisp, balanced and elegant with a distinctive mineral note that holds up well to rich, spicy foods.
5 STARS - WINE NZ Magazine: Materman noted a "good balance of green and ripe characters in this flavoursome and concentrated" Sauvignon from the Awatere, with its "punchy green olive and lemongrass notes and racy acidity". "Quite an unforced delicate style," thought Skilton. "It has a lovely direct fruit character that's pure and focused with a good degree of concentration and really firm acid spine." Burzynska called it "a delicious acid - driven style with an attractive herbal character and good weight".
5 STARS - WINE ORBIT: "This is beautifully lifted on the nose with tropical fruit, lime zest and herbaceous characters. The palate is powerful and intense, and shows excellent varietal definition, beautifully enhanced by refreshing acidity. Just great drinking. At its best: now to 2018."
