Serious Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

UK wine writer Jamie Goode wrote an article which asked the question - can Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc ever be serious?

In response we sent him a bottle of our new release 2008 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc and this is what he had to say.

"Amazingly full, aromatic nose with notes of grapefruit, passionfruit, herb and pear. Lots of richness, with a hint of greenness. The palate is complex and concentrated with sweet bold fruit and a subtle herbiness, as well as a nice minerality. Texturally rich but still fresh. Brilliantly poised. 92/100"

I was lucky enough to try some of yours, in loco.
