Superb wine with notes of flint, herbs, peach, nectarine and honeysuckle. The flavours continue for quite a while on the palate. Really lovely, impressive and complex stuff, topped and tailed by lemony acidity.

Outer quote mark Flavoursome, punchy sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, green capsicum, tomato leaf, passionfruit and a suggestion of oyster-shell-mineral character. A vibrant, high-energy wine with assertive acidity driving a lengthy finish.
95pts Sam Kim
Outer quote mark Combining impressive fruit intensity with textural mouthfeel, the wine shows nectarine, feijoa, lemon/lime zest and fresh fig aromas on the nose. It's equally satisfying on the palate with bright fruit flavours and fine texture, finishing splendidly long and appealing.

Hints of green tomato and bell pepper appear on the nose of the 2019 Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc. Thankfully, those are backed by a solid core of stone fruit and grapefruit, providing a sense of balanced ripeness to this medium-bodied offering. There's a plush silkiness to the texture on the palate and a lingering, vibrant, citrusy finish.

The Taylors Pass Sauvignon brightly waves the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc flag. This vintage expresses heady aromas of lime blossom, grapefruit rind, gooseberry and grass, lifted by crunchy acidity and with just enough texture to balance it out. A reliable, easy-drinking drop to pair with a wide range of summer fare.
This classy Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted aromatics of gooseberry and passion fruit lead into a pure and concentrated palate with snow pea, nettles and subtle minerality.
