​​​​Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc flaunts a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs, tropical fruits and bright citrus. Ripe stone fruit flavours and a distinct minerality hold up well to rich, spicy foods."

Judges Comments, NZIWS 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Excellent fruit concentration, fresh tropical fruit with a touch of oyster shell minerality."

95/100 David Walker Bell, November 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"A ‘lightning-strikes-twice’ wine – winning the Sauvignon Blanc trophy at NZIWS for the second year running in 2023. From the Awatere Valley, and showcasing those green herbal notes that are a signature from that location. So crisp, fresh and slightly funky on the nose. You notice the bottle opened from across the table – such is the distinctive perfume. A bright acidity and an exotic assemblage of passionfruit, green melon, lemongrass, blackcurrant and sorrel. The palate has such zest and flow from the acidity – it fairly flits across your tastebuds, before ending in a crash of juice, citrus pith and wet-stone minerality. Just fabulous – a deserved winner"

95/100 Judges Comment, Decanter World Wine Awards 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"Savoury, vibrant and pure with an expressive citrus and grassy scent. The palate has zippy acidity, great vibrato and attractive gooseberry notes. Crowd-pleasing but classy too."

Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2022 (2022 Vintage)
"Fabulous bouquet os sea spray and citrus fruits, there’s a savoury seam with a mix of tropical fruits and peaches, fresh basil and lime. On the palate – vibrant, saline, crisp, salivating and savoury, everything the bouquet suggests. Plush and vibrant, great mouthfeel and classic flavours. Best drinking from 2023 through 2025."
