A very nice Sav Blanc. Went exceedingly well with Dutch creamy cauliflower soup and Salmon and gnocchi. Definitely a good wine to accompany fish. But I must say it was astounding to have with the cauliflower soup. A taste sensation which I recommend.

We've drunk a few Nelson wines in the last few months, and it's been a bit of a revelation. Because the area is just starting to get established, the prices are definitely a point of competitiveness.  This is a really good Sav for the price point - which makes it a great quaffer, but it holds it's own well with food also.  It's a juicy, flavour-filled Sauvignon with tropical overtones of passionfruit.  It matches well with chicken, and the acidity makes it perfect for a creamy or cheesy dish.  We matched ours with a chicken and mushroom pasta in a cream sauce (I added some of the wine to the sauce for luck), and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better wine match for the food.   Otherwise, the price makes it perfect for Friday work drinks or something to tote along to a party.   This review is for the 2012 vintage.

An expert on wines I am not and only now and then will treat ourselves to a wine over $20. I was captured by the bouquet (can use the right word here and there) which held lots of promise. No disappointment. It does not knock some of the best off the pedestal but when you take into account the buy price offered $10, I erred to 5 stars. So yes back for more!

Not bad as a drink by itself but i like it better with chicken or a good firm fish. Slight hint of gooseberry and capsicum, and a nice lingering finish that pushes my buttons right now. At $10, really good value. Tastes more expensive.

As the label says - juicy, fruit-driven style, I say it's gold medal standard. Not a typical Marlborough savy, but of course it's Nelson(how the bureacrats combined them into one region I'll never understand). Will buy again - B.

I ordered a case of this wine for a summer lunch party at our house. Excellent value for money and went down a treat with guests - particularly as it was a hot day and we served it very cold (it is not bad with ice!). Quite an acidic sauvignon however, with a a very short finish.

My preference has always been Marlborough Sav's over any others however having sampled this particular Nelson vintage I'm slowly changing my mind that there are now some great Sav's outside Marlborough.  This 2009 vintage is very ready to drink now and won't get any better,  it's still very crisp and matches well with some nice Thai cuisine or just on the deck in the sunshine, especially if you're thirsty. Very good value at under ten bucks.

Wonderful grassy aroma, announcing a fresh crisp Sauvignon. Very pleasant and easy to drink. I didn't have it chilled, I think slight chilling would help it. Not the greatest Sauvi but, for the price, great. I'll buy more.
