Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"On release it has a pale lemon tint. The nose is an effervescent marriage of citrus, tropical and orchard fruits, underpinned with an herbaceous drive. Lime sherbet, green apple, gooseberry, and rock melon are juxtaposed against a backdrop of freshly mown grass, crushed thyme, and a snippet of lavender. In the mouth it is bright and zippy, a juicy and well weighted palate balanced with vibrant acidity and an undercurrent of minerality, leading to a crisp and racy finish."

Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Vibrant and youthful, varietal and nicely pungent to promote the aromas of fresh white fleshed fruits and pineapple core, basil and a crumbled mineral stone quality. Crisp, salivating, some saline texture and core of white fleshed fruits and citrus. A rather delicious expression ticking all the boxes of variety, style and origin. Best drinking from 2023 through 2026."

4 Stars Michael Cooper, October 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Estate-grown at Waipara and tank-fermented, the youthful 2023 vintage is freshly aromatic and full-bodied. Bright, light lemon/green, it is strongly varietal, with punchy tropical fruit and green capsicum flavours, appetising acidity and a fully dry finish. (From Pegasus Bay.)"

91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Flavoursome sauvignon blanc with grapefruit, lemongrass, red capsicum and lime zest flavours. An initial hint of sweetness is nicely balanced by refreshing acidity. Together they build an appealing tension."

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Brightly fruited and beautifully fragrant, showing crunchy apple, fig, lemon zest and feijoa characters on the nose, followed by a delightfully flavoursome palate that's bright and lingering. Upfront and intensely expressed, offering excellent drinking."

Joelle Tomson, drinksbiz Magazine, Februry/March 2024 (2023 Vintage)
"How does the Pegasus Bay winemaking team create this Sauvignon Blanc at such an affordable price? The 2023 Main Divide Sauvignon Blanc is all purity and zing with succulence in every sip. Gooseberries, ripe kiwifruit, green plums and lime zest layer themselves over each other in this zesty Sauvignon with its tasty, lingering finish. Proof that North Canterbury has many strings to its wine bow."

Main Divide is operated by the Donaldson family who work with a number of vineyards in North Canterbury, bringing the fruit together for processing at their winery in Waipara.

Like many New Zealand winemakers, Main Divide pursues a philosophy of natural methods and minimal intervention. They believe in sustainable viticulture, organic techniques, low crop levels, and minimal fruit handling during processing (along with gentle pressing).

Main Divide allows their wine to go through fermentation by wild yeasts, natural secondary or malo-lactic fermentation, and to clarify by settling.

Wine-maker Matthew Donaldson many years of experience and passion to produce a range of wines that show fresh, clean and pure fruit flavours while at the same time clearly expressing the characteristics of each unique vineyard. Matthew has many years experience making wine for both new and old world producers with a particular emphasis on Pinot Noir producing regions.
