Our Blackenbrook Sauvignon Blanc 2013 is a wonderfully delicate and yet tantalisingly complex wine with bright flavours of green pepper, tomato leave and passionfruit.  

Ideal serving temperature: 8 – 10°C


5 Stars Dish Magazine
New Zealand’s sunshine capital has produced something sensational here, a wine bursting with sweet passion fruit and floral aromatics, crunchy-crisp acidity and complex “herb garden, curry leaf, basil and mint” notes- a more refined and elegant sauvignon blanc, with warm texture and generosity.

4 Stars Michael Cooper
The 2013 is crisp and lively, tight and youthful, with strong melon, lime and green-capsicum flavours and a dry, racy finish.

4 Stars or 85/100 from Bob Campbell MW
Mountain stream purity and nervy acidity are the two features that stand out in this delicately aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. Grapefruit, orange blossom, gooseberry and passion fruit flavours are some of the more obvious descriptors. Tangy wine with an austere and drying finish that I rather like.
