Heaven Scent

NZ’s 2004 Sauvignon Blanc vintage has impressed American critics, with praise coming from numerous top U.S publications. Wall Street Journal: “Mouth-watering sauvignon blanc that just about [leaps] from the glass, with aggressive green-pepper smells, juicy tastes of lime and passion fruit, and clean, endless finishes.” Boston Globe: “The hallmark of Marlborough sauvignon blanc is citric and mineral flavors balanced by crisp, penetrating acidity. They have an appealing, almost electrifying zing.” Knight Ridder Tribune (Chicago): “Rooted so deeply to its location, a well-made wine can and does reflect its vineyard, its appellation, its country of origin and even its hemisphere. Just sip a sauvignon blanc from NZ if you don’t believe me. At best, it is like first love: Surprising, breathtaking and unforgettable.”
