Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2018
#60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc has great aromatic power with aromas of violet, fresh pear and white stone fruits. On the palate, this wine is generous and full-bodied with lush stone and passion fruits. A creamy mouth feel is balanced by crisp citrus acid drive and great length of flavor. Pair Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc with arugula and feta salad, pasta carbonara or freshly shucked oysters on a sunny day.

Wine EnthusiastMedium-gold in color, this North Canterbury Sauvignon leads with a heady nose of guava, lychee, and pineapple, with soft aromas of grass and tomato leaf. There's a nice play on the palate between texture and prickly acidity, with plenty of tropical fruit and a long finish. It makes for an apt pairing with summery cuisine.
Wine SpectatorOffers an appealing core of intense, lush flavors of ripe melon and peach, with details of white pepper, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit lingering on the finish. Impressive for the intensity and focus. Drink now. 14,800 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
