SAUVIGNON BLANC:

JULES TAYLOR WINES (MARLBOROUGH) SAUVIGNON BLANC 2013: INITIAL NOTES OF PASSIONFRUIT AND CELARY LEAF WITH A CRUNCHY HERBAL FULL-TO-MID-PALATE RETAINING FRESHNESS AND RATHER INTENSE FRUITINESS. IT IS MARLBOROUGH SAUV-BLANC THROUGH AND THROUGH BUT HAS NO SIGN OF SWEATINESS. THE LENGTH IS GOOD AND IT'S A GOOD SUNDAY ARVO QHAFFER.

Region: Marlborough

Alc/Vol: 13.5%

pH: 3.20

Acidity: 7.7g/l


 

GREYSTONE (WAIPARA) SAUVIGNON BLANC 2013: EVEN THE NOSE SHOWS THE TEXTURAL CHARM THAT THIS WINE PULLS ON THE PALATE. THERE'S A CREAMY, LEESY EFFECT AND THE SLIGHTEST HINT OF STRUCK MATCH, MINERAL AND FRESH CUT PEAR. IT'S LINEAR AND LENGTHY TOO BUT IT TEETERS ON THE EDGE BUT ONLY JUST ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF A CHARACTER I OFTEN DON'T LIKE, TINNED PINEAPPLE.

Region: Waipara

Alc/Vol: 13.5%

pH: 3.37

Acidity: 8.7g/l


 

MAN O' WAR "GRAVESTONE" (WAIHEKE ISLAND) SAUVIGNON BLANC SEMILLON 2012: FIRST IMPRESSIONS WERE "SWEET AND SOUR" WITH A TOUCH OF VA. THERE ARE OBVIOUS BARREL AND WILD FERMENT CHARACTERS AND I SENSED A LICK OF BOTRYTIS BUT WHO REALLY KNOWS EXCEPT THE WINEMAKER...LOVELY PHENOLICS AND A SALINE CRUNCH FLOW INTO A TERRIFIC FOOD-STYLE WINE OF SOME PRECISION AND COMPLEXITY ADDED BY FLAVOURS OF PEA-SHOOT...THIS IS A MORE PROUD AND POWERFUL WINE THAT OPENED UP MORE AND MORE AS TIME PASSED.

Region: Waiheke Island

Alc/Vol: 13.0%

pH: 3.15

Acidity: 8.65g/l


 

GREYWACKE (MARLBOROUGH) SAUVIGNON BLANC 2011: WELL, HERE WE HAVE SOME SWEATY NOTES BUTS LOTS OF LEESY, GUNSMOKE, FLESHINESS AND ROUNDED TIGHT NERVOUSNESS. THERE IS OAK BUT IT'S SUPERBLY INTEGRATED AND THE FLAVOURS JUST KEEP REVEALING THEMSELVES IN THIS TIGHTLY-BOUND YET EXPRESSIVE SAVVY...LENGTHY AND COMPLEX PUSHING THE BOUNDS TOWARD POUILLY-FUME FASHION BUT CLEAN AND GLUGGABLE. TRULY A GOOD WINE.
