Bob Campbell "Fresh, punchy sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, green capsicum, cut grass, passionfruit and nettle flavours. Smooth-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish."

Wine Enthusiast "This is an outgoing and crowd-pleasing Sauvignon with a firecracker of lime, guava, passionfruit, tomato leaf and bell pepper aromas. A big dollop of crunchy acidity is counterbalanced by subtle textural weight and a juicy stone fruit refreshment flows through to the finish." (2021 vintage)

Tim Atkin MW, International Wine Challenge "Classic fragrant aromas of gooseberries and nettles...well rounded with a crisp finish." (2020 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards "A tropical, richer style offering mango, passionfruit and peaches; there's some nice weight and roundness here. Medium finish." (2019 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Shows off fragrant lemongrass flavors, mingling with citrus and mango details. Offers a refreshing finish and grace notes of fresh ginger." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This opens with a classic Marlborough SB nose of lifted citrus, stone fruit and bell pepper with herbal undertones. There's zippy acidity and a slippery texture on the mouthfeel. It finishes with lovely fresh citrus and herbal characters. " (2019 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Light, tangy sauvignon blanc with green-grassy, capsicum and gooseberry flavours supported by green apple-like acidity." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This needs time in glass to aerate and to show its passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and green herbed characters. Even then, the acidity is a little searing, just barely kept in check by some fruit weight." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "The tangy notes of lemon-lime are appealing, accented by lemongrass and ruby grapefruit details. Finishes with a hint of juicy acidity." (2014 vintage)

The Winemaker "Quintessentially Marlborough, the wine is strikingly vibrant with aromatics of lime zest, kiwifruit, orange blossom and a subtle note of rockmelon. The palate is soft and rich initially, then carried by juicy acidity to a long refreshing finish. My philosophy is simple source outstanding fruit from exceptional vineyard sites."

Crowded House is a multi-award winning, Marlborough based winery. The name - Crowded House - could be a nod to the famous Kiwi rock band, but actually stems from the crowded, yet unique Marlborough region and the winemaker's mission to "stand out from this crowded world of wine." Crowded House wines are fresh, approachable and expressive with clean, crisp aromatics.

Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial-scale viticulture began in Marlborough the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!

Sauvignon Blanc is currently the bestselling white wine in Singapore. It pairs well with white meats including Chicken, Pork and Turkey. It also complements fish.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While the grape may be more readily associated with the Loire Valley (for its pivotal role in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé), it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux, where it is typically blended with Semillon.

In the late 20th Century, a new region began to gain a reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world: Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine.

Outside France and New Zealand, the variety has been relatively successful in New World regions such as California, Chile (particularly the Casablanca and San Antonio valleys) and South Africa. Even in Australia, the variety can thrive in the cooler coastal areas of the south. In Europe, the cool, sunny sub-alpine slopes of Alto Adige and Friuli in northern Italy produce high-quality Sauvignon Blanc, which is used in blends with native varieties like Friulano or on its own.
