Not thin on flavor like some Long Island wines. Very good. — 2 days ago
Kiwi, vanilla, white flowers like jasmine, lemon oil and capsicum skin on the nose. Some acetone that blows off. Celery, aloe, preserved lemon, apple flesh, green peppercorn, in the mouth. Bayberry and grass on the finish. The texture is slightly waxy finish and lightly grabby and tannic on the roof of the mouth. The Long Island flavor here. Nothing gets it quite like floral terranes. No other Sauvignon Blanc is like this either. — 23 days ago
Great nose of bruised apple and caramel/brown sugar, slight ginger, atmosphere. Whole lime that blows off. Such a clean flavor: Granny Smith, lemon pith, cel-ray soda, salt, rain water. This is what Long Island tastes like. Dangerously easy to drink. Taste and texture unlike anything else, except maybe the other floral terranes wines and ciders, and maybe the vegetal flavors of a scheurebe without the strong acid. — a month ago

I am enjoying sampling PN's from different regions...Central Otago offers some nice selections..as always vintage depending...but I have found the 2015's to be quite nice!
This wine is New World in style...damp earth..mushrooms..bing cherry..mild oak...nutmeg..cinnamon...mild acidity..presents with a decent long finish!
Revisiting this post vacuum pumped and put in the fridge...this has opened up even more...enjoying the earthiness of this wine! — 13 days ago
Tonight I have opened the 2017 Te Awanga Rod McDonald Mister Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose there is generous amounts of lime, guava, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, nectarine, white flowers, minerality and wet concrete.
On the palate I am finding nice citrus, lime, white peach, green apple, kiwi fruit, nectarine, celery, herbs and minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves nicely into a long clean citrus finish. Have a continued great weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 4 days ago
Beautiful wine. I drank the 2013 vintage in 2019 after aging it a little. — 13 days ago
Happy Halloween everyone. I stopped today and picked up a few wines for the weekend and this 2017 Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc South Island Marlborough New Zealand is the one I have chosen to have tonight. New Zealand continues to amaze me with their Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose are beautiful fruit notes and grapefruit leads the way and lime is right behind, white peach, nectarine rind and a nice mineral backbone.
On the palate that citrus fruit continues with lime, grapefruit, white peach, nectarine, herbs, spice and minerality.
This wine is medium bodied that has a really a good crisp, clean, fresh mouth feel and medium + acidity that leads into a long fruit mineral laden finish. I hope everyone are enjoying their Halloween just please be safe out there. Nostrovia! The 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 21 days ago
