Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2021)
This stunning white is aromatic, fresh and intense, with notes of lemon curd, yuzu, peach, ripe melon and honeysuckle that are effortless and mouthwatering, backed by lemongrass and candied ginger notes on the long, expressive finish. Drink now

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 93 Points (2021)
The 2021 Sauvignon from Greywacke is classic yet classy. It is richly aromatic yet not flamboyant, with good purity of fruit: expect flavors of black currant and nectarine alongside subtle tropical fruit and citrus. Due to a naturally low-yielding season, it offers impressive concentration and a ripe, succulent midpalate. The fine, mouthwatering acidity provides length and line on the zesty, passionfruit-infused, lightly structured finish. Delightful in youth, but it will evolve and provide a different Sauvignon experience in five to seven years.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2021)
An aromatic nose of white flowers, peaches, sage and a hint of banana leaf. Medium-bodied with silky texture and a crisp finish. Refreshing and tasty, showing a lot of restraint and class. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 95 Points (2020)
A classic yin and yang sauvignon blanc with passionfruit and guava flavours contrasting with lime juice, green capsicum and lemongrass, while a sweet-and-sour contrast builds a delicious tension. Nice purity and length (2/2021)

Decanter (DCT) : 95 Points (2020)
Seductive bouquet of wild flowers and minerals, a fine leesy complexity and fresh aromas and flavours of citrus, peach tea and sweet hay. Crisp, refreshing, fruity and dry with fine texture. Just enough concentration of flavour to contrast the fresh herb notes and salivating acidity. Well made and long. (CD) (11/2020)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2020)
Aromas of bright peach, passionfruit, orchard blossom and a vegetal note are seamless on the nose. They flow gently to the palate where there’s a lovely texture, freshness and overall harmony. (CP) (11/2021)

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2019)
Subtle scents of snap peas mark the nose of the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. There's passion fruit as well, plus pink grapefruit and a slight crushed tomato-leaf component. It's similarly complex on the palate, where it's medium-bodied, with a strong core of grapefruity acids that give it backbone and length.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2017)
Interesting aroma that seems almost a little salty but still has the fresh green-fruits and herbal aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon. On the palate there are riper flavours of melon, even gooseberry (which I rarely seem to find on Marlborough Sauvignon these days) and lovely freshness. There's a very slight grip in the texture but no unwanted phenolics. Tastes dry but leaves my mouth feeling as if there might be a touch of residual sugar? (JH)

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2016)
Kevin Judd, the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay, makes this wine under his own label from vineyards in the Southern Valleys and Wairau Plain, as well as one on a terrace in the upper Awatere Valley. It’s a citrusy sauvignon in 2016, girded by flinty notes that seem to tighten around all the rich lime flavors. Cool, laser-like acidity keeps it tense and focused; for any roast fish.

An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.

Sweet floral aromas of rose and violet are predominant on the nose with a hint of fresh mint and spices. On the palate, it is elegant and harmonious, with a good acidity balancing the concentration of body and flavours.
