Trophy for Champion Sauvignon Blanc – New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018
Gold Medal – New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018

Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Blind River offers wine lovers small quantities of evocative, handmade wines that carry an authentic expression of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley. With such a small vineyard, Blind River Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir can never be of significant volume. The team therefore focus on two things; nurturing the vines to produce grapes with an authentic expression of the both the varietal and the vineyard and then translating this into the finished wine.

A single Sauvignon Blanc from the Awatere Valley. Pale straw in colour, bright and fresh with strong citrus, passion fruit with underlying capsicum and herbal notes. The palate has great concentration, a lovely crisp acidity and an explosion of flavour, as well as a textural element that really sets this wine apart."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"This single-vineyard wine is partly (10 per cent) barrel-fermented. Already delicious, the 2018 vintage is highly aromatic, with mouthfilling body, punchy passionfruit/lime flavours, toasty notes adding complexity, and a long finish. An intense, vigorous wine, it should be at its best during 2019."

Sue Courtney,, November 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Crammed with pungent aromas and fresh tropical fruit salad flavours that brim with pineapple, passionfruit and mango with ripples of summery herbs and a wham bang punch of quiveringly tart grapefruit that leaves behind a vibrant zing. Trophy NZ Wine of the Year Awards."
