New World Blind Tasting Group $25+ (Bin 75): Pale steely straw; grassy, grapefruit, lime, chives in back with some crème fraiche; grassier than most [from NZ], musky, no mineral, lime pith; styled more like a Sancerre than more NZ SBs, thought this was either Greywacke or Cloudy Bay.

"New New World" chardonnay. Starts off with generous tropical fruit, which evolves into green, vegetal notes (tulip stalks), which in turn transform into rather elegant oak. Well balanced with good acidity.

I don't know what the people who critized this wine before drank but I find this wine delicous. A lot of grapefruit lemongrass and orange skin has this wine. Although I am not a fan of Cloudy Bay and younger vintages disappointed me, this wine vintage is superb.

Lemon yellow. Medium intensive nose of tropical fruit, citrus fruit and a hint of elderflower. Dry with a medium acidity and body. Not much complexion, in decline.

Light color. Pungently varietal nose. Light weight with a touch of glycerine. Dry, grapefruit, inner mouth tanginess and crispness. Good.

Beautiful crisp nose of gooseberry, passionfruit, lime. Palate of clear water, minerals, guava, passionfruit, citrus.

Clean, clear, beautiful. A great mix of Sancerre and Marlborough. Water of the gods.

Gassy nose, lemons, touch of green pepper and some passionfruit
initially very dry, lemony, plenty of acidity and then tropical fruitiness builds
Lots of bold NZ flavours but it's all under control
Long pithy finish
This is good.

Still keen on this. A year later the oak has receded and it's lost that slightly stalky edge. It's now all about the raspberry fruit and then a good savoury finish.
Seems less complex than the bottle I tried last year but it's still delicious. This is still very primary and will age, I think, for at least another 5 years.

Drank with Adam - sous vide sea bass and ad hoc scallops with roasted veggies. I thought the flavor profile of this wine paired well with our meal.

Pale yellow in the glass. Generous nose of oyster leaf, lemon zest, grapefruit rind, and hay. They come across to me as a single unit rather than many layers. The body is medium minus with bright acidity and salinity. The finish is medium plus. Not the best vintage I've had in recent years, but may fare well in the bottle for 2-3. My past experience with this producer is that they are built for a short age.

When I tried this wine directly after release I was heaviliy disappointed. Overprized, nothing special compared to other Sauvignon Blancs in that pricerange.

But this one has evloved into a nutty, almond smelling and tatsting round and complex wine.

The drinking window is closing. Enjoyed it.

Grassy, guava, passion fruit, and lemon-lime scents show excellent depth and a hint of gooseberries. Velvety and seamless in texture, offering crisp flavors that are restrained but not lacking for energy. This is dry, juicy, and generous, with lime pith on the interminable finish.

Pours very clear pale greenish yellow.

On the nose, cat pee, skunk and what I suppose gooseberries smell like.

On the palate, green herbal flavors, bell peppers and grass balanced against an impressive array of tropical fruit, passionfruit, grapefruit, lime, starfruit. Significant body and concentration. Finish is long and acidic with some mineral notes.

I am not a big NZ Sauv Blanc drinker, but I can see why this is considered the standard. It's an impeccably made wine. I wanted to see if the quality justifies the price and the hype and I think that it does.
