Grove Mill Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

96 points - Decanter Magazine Premium New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc Panel Tasting

Established in 1988 in the Wairau Valley by a group of local winegrowers and enthusiasts, Grove Mill is dedicated to crafting premium wines with minimal environmental impact. Long before sustainability was fashionable, Grove Mill's founders integrated sustainable practises into their winemaking ethos. The Southern Bell Frog, for which they have established a wetland beside the winery, is a symbol of their commitment to preserve the land for the future. The most recent pioneering effort includes the installation of three hundred 'grid connected' solar panels to help power the winery. This specialised type of solar panel returns unused, excess energy to the grid to store for future use, as needed.

The 2016 Grove Mill's Sauvignon Blanc is typical of fruit from the Wairau Valley displaying loads of passionfruit, tropical fruits and blackcurrants. The palate shows richness and intensity from lees aging giving a delicious, lengthy finish.

Melanie Brown: This has an intriguing character, full of weight and texture, thanks in part to its oak ageing and wonderful alignment of savoury and enticing fruit characters. Pulled together effortlessly creating a wonderful wine.
Bob Campbell MW: This is an intense, pure and appealing Sauvignon with lime, citrus, gooseberry and a subtle, nutty lees character supported by lovely acidity. Reminiscent of a very good Sancerre in style and elegance.
Cameron Douglas MS: This wine has everything; wild ferment characters, lees, mineral, some sulphides, and lovely pristine fruit flavours. It's layered and wild, lengthy and lively.
