Bob Campbell, 95/100, 5 stars, #6 of 137 Sauvignon Blanc tasted from Marlbo

2014 SAUVIGNON BLANC

Deliciously restrained Sauvignon Blanc with mineral, citrus/pink grapefruit, and nutty lees/brioche characters. It has a great almost ethereal texture and plenty of weight and yet boasts tantalising purity. Very sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc with concentration and power. Tasted in a vertical line-up going back to the first vintage in 2004. This vintage earned top rating with 2013 although the earlier vintage is a an overtly fruitier and more accessible style. 2014 is probably a better food wine.

Bob Campbell, 96/100, 5 stars, #4 of 71 Pinot Noir tasted from Marlborough

2013 Pinot Noir

Moderately intense Pinot Noir with plum, dark cherry/berry flavours together with a spicy, sappy, savoury dimension from the use of 10% whole-bunch grapes in the fermentation. Vibrant, elegant wine with an impressively long and linear finish.
