Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme mingle with passionfruit and melon highlights. A complex and elegant wine with classic characters of blackcurrant bud and fresh cut thyme. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough combine well with the more tropical notes of passionfruit and melon from the Wairau Valley vineyards. A stylish and pleasingly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant aromatics and a fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish.​"
98/100 & Rated Exceptional, Decanter, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc Tasting, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Tinpot Hut's wines are made from owner and winemaker Fiona Turner's own vineyards in Blind River. The winery is named after an old historic mustering hut which is a local landmark in the area. Before vines were planted here, sheep roamed the lands and these huts were crucial in gathering them together. It's a wonderful reminder of Marlborough's sheep farming past, in contrast to what it is arguably most famous for today, Sauvignon Blanc. Up against 92 other Sauvignon Blancs the Tinpot Hut SB came out on top with a phenomenal score of 98 points.

Judge Melanie Brown commented: "This is a flinty, dry and textural wine. A concentrated and poised amalgamation of complexity and style, effortlessly pure and well composed with nice phenolics and crisp acidity."

Cameron Douglas: “Classic herbal, grassy and fruity bouquet with flavours of fresh lemon and grapefruit, then red apple and some tropical fruit; vibrant acidity, refreshing, balanced and well made with decent length.”

Bob Campbell MW: "A broad Sauvignon Blanc with cut grass and subdued passionfruit flavours. This is quite a lively, energetic wine with a lengthy finish."
