Buy Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc
Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish.
Wine Spectator 87 points - Light-bodied, but still packs a wallop both in flavor and crisp acidity. Green apple, lemon, lime and gooseberry flavors are intense, focused and very refreshing. Drink now. 15,833 cases made. –MW (Jun 15 2011)

Wine maker notes
Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc enjoys the best of both worlds - old and new. The wonderful rich Marlborough fruit is gently restrained by Lodovico and his winemaker, to display a delightful minerality with perfect structure. Such is the delicacy of Mount Nelson, it goes perfectly with Sushi, as well as the more classic pairings of seafood, particularly oysters.

Technical notes
Located 60 feet above sea level on the banks of Taylor River, the estate vineyard is composed of free draining alluvial loams over deep, stony river deposits. 60% of the fruit is estate, the remainder was purchased from the adjoining Meadowbank vineyard. After picking, the fruit was cold soaked for 48 hours in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Using selected yeasts to maintain and enhance the cool climate character of the wine, the juice was cold fermentated for 10 to 14 days.
