West Brook Blue Ridge Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
A consistently impressive wine - and the 2001 is a striking mouthful. Ten per cent barrel-fermented, it has beautifully ripe fruit aromas leading into a smooth, refined palate with lovely intensity of passionfruit and lime-evoking flavours. It's a mouthfilling, vibrant and zingy wine with a rich finish. The 2002 vintage is a weighty wine (13.5 per cent alcohol) with fresh, concentrated tropical fruit flavours, a touch of complexity and a sustained finish. Looks great for 2003.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
This attractive wine is further evidence of West Brook's now consistently high standard. The 1998 vintage is a full, fresh and lively wine with very good depth of limey, tangy flavour. The 1999 made from grapes grown by Charles Wiffen, offers lush, ripe passionfruit/lime fruit characters that give an impression of sweetness, but the wine is fully dry. Tasted in its infancy, it looked excellent.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
The 1996 vintage is one of this small Henderson winery's best Sauvignons yet Pale, fresh and frisky, it exhibits strong herbaceous aromas and incisive melon/capsicum flavours, lively and lingering. The '97 is slightly less intense, but still offers good depth of fresh, ripe passionfruit/lime flavours, lively and crisp.
