WINESTATE (2011 Vintage) says
Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Typically great value. The 2010 vintage is a slightly minerally, appetisingly crisp blend of Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley grapes, with good intensity of melon/lime flavours, fresh, aromatic, lively and refreshing. The 2011 is light and crisp, with a freshly herbaceous bouquet and melon, gooseberry and lime flavours, showing good depth.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Vavasour's drink-young, unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is typically great value. The 2009 vintage is a fresh, vibrant, finely balanced blend of Awatere Valley (70 per cent) and Wairau Valley (30 per cent) grapes. Strongly varietal, it has very good delicacy and depth of melon, lime and green-capsicum flavours.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
The Vavasour winery's drink-young, unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is typically great value. The 2005 vintage is a 50/50 blend of Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley grapes. It's a very fresh, crisp and vibrant wine with gooseberry, lime and mineral flavours showing good richness and a lingering, dryish (4.7 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The Vavasour winery's drink-young, unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is typically great value. Already delicious, the 2002 vintage is a blend of Awatere Valley (65 per cent) and Wairau Valley grapes. Less grassy than in some past years, it's a weighty wine with a ripely herbaceous bouquet, fresh acidity and smooth melon/lime flavours, showing good vivacity and length.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The Vavasour winery's drink-young, unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is typically blended from Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley fruit. Pale lemon/green, the 1998 vintage is full and fresh, in a less pungently herbaceous and aromatic style than usual. The palate is the feature - it offers excellent depth of ripe, passionfruit and lime-like flavours and a long, zippy finish. (The 1999 won a silver medal in August at me Liquorland Top 100 Competition.)
