As well as being called one of the '60 Best New Zealand Wines 2009', the 2008 BLIND RIVER SAUVIGNON BLANC has had stellar reviews in the press overseas where they have described it as "awesome", "intense", "finely textured"and "elegant" with "a mass of passionfruit and elderflower scents" and "zesty acidity and a lively zip".. Here in Canada , local wine writer Natalie MacLean rated it 91/100 and called it "Stunningly delicious Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant notes of fresh grass, lime, chives and green apple. Not too herbal. Refreshing and mercifully free of oak. A zesty aperitif or a companion to a wide range of dishes. Superb effort!" Toronto Star writer, Gordon Stimmell also rated it highly at 89/100.
