"Winemaking experience, vine age, and a top vineyard site have each played a part in creating this successful Sauvignon Blanc. Intense, punchy Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, guava, lime, gooseberry and lemongrass flavours. Very well-made wine from a tough vintage. Crisp, dry with a lingering finish. One of the best Marlborough Sauvignons I have tasted from the tricky 2022 vintage"

"Fabulous bouquet of sea spray and citrus fruits, there’s a savoury seam with a mix of tropical fruits and peaches, fresh basil and lime. On the palate - vibrant, saline, crisp, salivating and savoury, everything the bouquet suggests. Plush and vibrant, great mouthfeel and classic flavours. Best drinking from 2023."

Vavasour Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2022 shows recognizable aromas of passionfruit and citrus peel upfront, evolving with layers of green tropicals and an oyster shell minerality. Vibrant flavours of tropical fruits and citrus hang off this concentrated and textural wine. A saline minerality and an elegant acid line run through the wine showcasing its Awatere Valley origin. Poised and complex.
