So, just arrived in Australia this morning for some wine exploring, and my wife wanted a wine we could sip, so here we are drinking Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. As fine as the “regular” Greywacke SB is, this wine seems another level up, gooseberry aromas and flavors, really complex, actually reminds me of the early Cloudy Bay SBs we drank a fair amount of after visiting the Cloudy Bay winery back in 1994. — 21 days ago
Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and sweet spicy earthy oak. On the palate flavors of blackpberry, blueberry and currants with licorice and vanilla notes. Medium fine tannins with racy acidity, great mouthfeel on a medium finish. Drink now, screw cap! — 6 months ago

This pale wine shows mineral and herbal qualities on the nose. The wine smells much grassier than the previous two New Zealand SBs I sampled (Babich and Greywacke). The palate shows a boatload of citrus minerality, too, with a racy acidity. Crustaceans and mollosks are welcome here. — 4 months ago

High end Sauv Blanc. Different to Greywacke Wild or Dog Point Sec 94 - less oaky and less breadth, more linear. Lemon, almost tangerine character. The oak and lees comes through in the mouthfeel, which is soft and supple. Very good wine but not in my mind as good@as its oaked nz companions. — a year ago
