95 Points – Cameron Douglas (September 2020)
“Complex, toasty and fragrant with aromas of oaty bread and buttered brioche, red apple, citrus and peach. Bold explosive mousse with a coarse silk texture, high acidity and flavours that mirror the nose. Fresh, crisp, dry, and just a little bit elegant. A lovely expression and ready to enjoy from today and through 2025+.

93 Points – Cameron Douglas (September 2020)
“Varietal, ripe, fleshy, juicy, and quietly complex. Aromas and flavours of red berries, red apple, wild forest flowers and smoky wood. Firm textures with chalky tannins and plenty of acidity. The core of fruit accentuates the flavours of red currants and plum, some wild berries and raspberry moments. Balanced, youthful, and well made. Ready from today and through 2025+.”
94 Points – Cameron Douglas (September 2020)
“Vibrant, youthful, fresh and varietal with distinctive aromas of passionfruit, citrus and tropical fruits. Fresh herbs de provence and sage, pineapple and light white smoke soil moment. Tense, crunchy, fresh, herbaceous, and fruity on the palate. Plenty of acidity, a core of fruit and a juicy lengthy finish. Ready from today and through 2023.”
18.5/20 Points – Joelle Thomson
“The first vintage of Hunter’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was 1982 and the style is tropical, and fruit driven on the nose and palate with vibrant acidity giving it drive. It’s bone dry in taste, which adds another refreshing string to this white wine’s crisp, bright bow. It drinks well now and can age, thanks to that high acidity, which helps to preserve the wine.”
Very good – Otago Daily Times
“A wisp of smoke and struck match lead into a combo of gooseberry and passionfruit. Leads with a sweet fruit jube before typical grassy, gooseberry notes flood in: some power here. A razor’s edge of acidity adds lemony citrus before the wine runs to a fruit sherbetty zing on the close. Crisp and zesty.
