91pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous
A delicious white, this Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc is not only pretty on the palate, it's easy on the wallet too. Bright minerality, citrusy goodness, earthy notes and lovely acidity make it the perfect pairing for seafood, fish, chicken pork, salads, light pastas, appetizers and much more. Try your first glass with a platter of fried shrimp with a lemon aioli or oysters on the half shell with a shallot mignonette. Crispy garlic-breaded chicken thighs on a frisee salad is a terrific option for the next course, as is roasted pork tenderloin with apricot chutney. Pick an aged chevre cheese to bring out the beautiful minerality of this New Zealander and end the meal on a high note. Put some toasted pecans and dried apple on the plate with it for an added treat.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has a vigorous bouquet of grass clippings and crushed stone, just a hint of white asparagus in the background lending complexity. The taut, linear palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, then fans out towards the finish with crisp Granny Smith and gooseberry notes. Drink 2018-2023. Excellent." Nov 2018

Wine Spectator: Designated Top 100 Best Value of 2018. “Honeysuckle, peach cobbler and Key lime pie notes are aromatic, lush and expressive, set on a crisp, sleek frame, with plenty of juiciness and refreshment, finishing with a dash of grapefruit zest. Drink now.” Aug 2018

Winery:  “Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. A perfect match with plump oysters, green lip mussels, even prosciutto and rock melon.”
