“… aromas of grapefruit peel, gooseberry and crushed herbs. At once supple and brisk, with a dusty impression of extract giving this very lively, white-peppery wine serious texture and breadth. … with serious thrust for its modest alcohol...”

“Snow pea is a descriptor often attached to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, but I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a wine that captures it as precisely as this one does. Zesty citrus notes fill out the wine’s medium body and linger on the finish.”

Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough – 2014

Intense, lifted nose of citrus, gooseberry and a touch of nettles. The palate is fine with refreshing acidity and a long, clean citrus finish. Lees aging in stainless-steel tanks for four months after completed fermentation adds texture and length.

"Tangy, crisp and pure with juicy citrus and racy acidity and bright minerals; Ludovico Antinori's Kiwi venture' quite lovely and long."

“Ludovico Antinori knows a thing or two about Sauvignon Blanc…the 2012 Mount Nelson has a subtle, but mouth-filling creaminess. Coupling its quality with its price makes it very easy to recommend.”

"Made in the expected 'lime, gooseberry, new-mown hay' herbal style, but…has striking tropical fruit notes as well, and a near-perfect balance…this one is aimed directly at the dinner table."

“This vintage…fairly sings with intense aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit and mown hay, sort of the classic profile for the wines of Marlborough, where the winds blow cold and the Sauvignons are typically lean and mean, in a good way.”

“A joint venture between Tuscany’s Lodovico and Piero Antinori, Mount Nelson’s 2010 is a fresh, herbal rendering of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Treble notes of tomato leaf and bell pepper predominate, with grapefruit providing the bass.”

"Cold soak and stainless steel tank fermentation with no malolactic yielded a Sauvignon Blanc with a very pale gold color, passion fruit and lime zest aromatics and more tropical fruit in the flavors, balanced by mouth-watering acidity."

"this Sauvignon Blanc reflects its origins precisely. The pleasantly pungent grapefruit and lime-like notes are refreshing and invigorating. It delivers far more than you’d expect at the price. Buy it by the case..."

"Juicy, dense and intense, with excellent penetration to the grapefruit, soft citrus and fresh herb flavors. As dry and bracing as this is, there's solid palate-coating texture here too, and excellent length and lift."

“just the slightest leafiness beneath guava, mango, lemon, and pineapple—while managing a tight, razor-sharp, silky, finesseful feel on the palate."

“A light and tangy white, with orange peel overtones to the pineapple and caramel flavors, hinting at lime as the finish lingers.”
