Generally you do not get much for these dollars when it comes to Sauvignon Blanc but this price on this great drinking Savvy from Waipara turns that on its head. Coming from very low yielding vines on the Fraher Vineyard this has fantastic intensity and texture along with the fruit weight to carry its bright and juicy acidity. The Crater Rim Sauvignon Blanc has proven ageing ability but at this price it makes for the perfect quaffer albeit better than most at this price. 


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"It's delightfully fruited and complex on the nose showing Gala apple, grapefruit, oatmeal, subtle flint and lime zest characters. The palate is wonderfully weighted and persistent, displaying juicy fruit intensity backed by vibrant acidity, finishing long and attractively savoury. At its best: now to 2023."

The Crater Rim takes its name from the twin craters of the ancient Akaroa and Lyttelton volcanos. Eruptions from these majestic landforms in ages past gifted the surrounding land with an enduring fertility.

The Crater Rim's first yineyard was planted above Akaroa township and the significance of this location in terms of its climatic effect on the whole region of Canterbury meant this brand would extend to include plantings in additional sub-regionsof Waipara, Omihi and Banks Peninsula and Central Otago.

Waipara, in North Canterbury's hills, is now the home base for The Crater Rim where specific sub-regional terriors contribute to the wines produced on their vineyards. Exceptional Pinot Noir is produced at The Crater Rim's winery site, Omihi Rise, also in North Canterbury. The Frahar Vineyard in Waipara also supplies Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

The Crater Rim is a frequent recipient of awards, including multiple medals in the New World Wine Awards and regular reviews by Sam Kim of Wine Orbit.

    5 star review  Best wine shop in Christchurch. Excellent range from NZ and overseas, great weekly specials and staff picks. Free delivery in Christchurch for 6 bottles or more, or drive in pick up option. I like that I can place an order online and pay with Eftpos on pick up.

    5 star review  Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    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  Best wine shop in Christchurch! Caters to all tastes and budgets. Be prepared to spend a while in this store as the options are endless. The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10
