A beautifully pure and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, lime and nettle. The wine is concentrated and juicy with vibrant fruit and fantastic mid palate weight, finishing with a crisp fresh acidity. Enjoy now and until 2013. Serve with grilled fish, tomato, green bean and feta cheese salad.

Wine SpectatorA pretty, floral, fragrant honeysuckle note gives way to bright, crisp and clear lemon curd, pear, peach and melon flavors that are ripe and smooth, highlighted by vibrant acidity.

Wine EnthusiastVM's 2010 Cellar Selection SB is slightly weightier than its Private Bin counterpart, but not necessarily better. Tomato leaf notes cruise alongside bold pineapple and citrus, ending in a mouthwatering crescendo of flavor.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Cellar Selection Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc gives intense notes of ripe grapefruit, white peaches and sage with a hint of lemon zest. Medium bodied with mouth-filling citrus and fresh herb flavors, it has lively, balanced acidity and a long finish. Drinking now, it should remain fresh through 2013.
