Dried toast and fresh grass, with a little gooseberry and white tea make up the nose of this cool climate sauvignon...

A great buy here in a brilliant, juicy sauvignon that bristles with intense grapefruit/lime, nettles and passion...

Tough to beat this crunchy, green apple and green pepper-flavoured sauvignon for sheer value, another welcome release...

This isn't quite at the level of Matetic's fantastic Syrah, but it's still a really good single varietal from a great producer at an exceptional price. It's young, fresh, and vibrant, with typical SB notes prominent but not overbearing: nettle, gooseberry, passion fruit, and lime, the combination providing significant verve. But what makes this a genuinely good wine is a savoury vegetal streak that manifests itself subtly as green pepper and herbs, along with a closing bitterness that suggests ample underlying structure. Very nicely done, flavourful and refreshing, with admirable complexity.

An intense and vibrant Sauv Blanc here from a cool costal region in Chile. I get some pronounced pineapple flavours, back by passion fruit and lemon lime flavours. Very crisp and fresh. Organic and a very good value indeed. Tasted July 2016.
