A different expression to the well known "Province" Sauvignon Blanc, the Awatere Sauvignon focuses on Marlborough's more southern Awatere Valley, and the one that Bob Campbell MW has consistently scored in the mid-nineties for many years now. It's absolutely classical in Awatere character with grassy, green capsicum and tomato leaf flavours all wrapped up in a powerful and punchy mouthfeel and a nice line of bright mineral acidity draws out the finish.


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Focused aromas of jalapeño, nettle, lime zest, lemongrass and fresh herbs. A linear, pure wine with clean flavours of currants, gooseberry and citrus. Finishes savoury, crisp and dry."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, December 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"A ripe example of Awatere Valley sauvignon blanc, with underlying cut grass, saline-mineral and tomato leaf flavours. Flavoursome wine with fruity, mouth-watering acidity. A delicious wine."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"The 2020 vintage is a bright, light lemon/green, full-bodied wine, with generous tropical-fruit and herbaceous flavours, vigorous, finely balanced, bone-dry and lingering. Best drinking mid-2021+."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"Ripe, fruity, varietal and enticing with a core of citrus and fresh white fleshed fruit aromas, a quiet savoury dried herb aroma adds depths and intrigue. Lovely collection of textures and flavours on the palate reflecting the bouquet with citrus and barely sugar, apple, fresh herb and tropical fruit. Lovely long finish. Best drinking from today and through 2025+."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
