Wine tasting notes

Gentle flavours and aromas of lime, citrus and nectarine compliment the distinct aroma of passionfruit. A mineral element gives presence to a Sancerre-like textural character in the wine. The fresh acid is balanced by a tiny amount of retained sweetness. A modest alcohol level is a big plus for this style of wine.

Food matching

This is a great wine to drink on its own or it would fit well with Asian style food or fresh shellfish. New season’s asparagus or dishes featuring goat cheese would be sensational match.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 86 pts

March 2016 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc has a sweaty, vegetal nose of musk, asparagus and pea pods with a core of ripe apples and gooseberries. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with tangy herbal laced flavors and has plenty of kick in the long, zesty finish.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2010) - 90 pts

Sept/Oct 2011 by Stephen Tanzer - Pale, bright yellow-straw color. Pungent aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and lemon grass, with hints of orange blossom and thyme. Rich, silky and sweet, offering a mouthfilling blend of concentrated citrus, tropical and stone fruit flavors. Generous yet firm sauvignon with brisk acidity giving grip to the finish.


Wine Spectator (2010) - 88 pts

Issue Web Only 2012 - Peach, mango and hints of tropical notes are ripe, round and juicy, leading to a terrific core of fruit flavors and a mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made. ?MW


Nick Stock (2011) - 92 pts

This is one of the best releases of the Trinity Hill White Label (Hawke's Bay) sauvignon I've seen - plenty of vibrant tropical fruits and lime here. The palate's tangy and tart, quite dry, and delivers green mango and passionfruit flavour in zesty form.
