Wildly funky nose of cauliflower, Cheerios, wet ferret, and charred pork rinds. Palate is big with black stone, a touch of heat, and lemon kiwi. For wine geeks only. $35

A bit sulfured/reduced and didn't really come out of it after an hour+ open. Not typical NZ Sav Blanc. More rounded and soft. Partial malo? Energetic. Very flinty and nutty with some citrus peel. Not a bad wine, just not showing well right now. I think it has more to offer several years down the road.

What starts as garden hose, shifts to capers then citrus peel. Lovely length and texture with malo and funky edge with roasted almonds. Still amazing. Thanks for putting this on my radar @Dave Kluz !

Incredibly funky Sav Blanc. One of the most interesting SBs from New Zealand I've tried.

Not a big fan of cat pee aromas.

The Majestic sales rep insisted that I try this wine. I found out why. Completely unusual and very different then any New Zealand SB I have ever tasted. Funky nose which reminds me of camomile, melted plastic, and sandalwood with cat pee all over it. Palette reflected the same but with very crisp acidity, lime, and smoky oak character. Would drink again.

Rocking nose of rosted garlic, passion fruit, French oak spice and citrus rind. Palate is grippy and powerful. Has plenty of life so no rush to open.

Funky but a bit too funky since the last time I tasted it. I found it interesting but not that enjoyable my friends wanted to move on to something crisper and lighter pretty quickly.

Wow, this is absolutely amazing Sauvignon. Something between naturally made Chablis and Sancerre from Vacheron with a little bit of New Zealand in it.
