More from Mt Olympus in Marlborough

29 July,2011
The Mt Olympus brand is making forays into the market using channels that operate away from traditional domestic retail. It's not the formula relied on for ages, but very much the modern way, not only to survive, but to succeed. A number of the labels are destined and reserved for on-line retailers, such as blackmarket.co.nz and others are released off-shore. The wines can offer very good value. The key to continued sales must be quality in the bottle, and the Mt Olympus wines have earned a number of top awards. Well-sourced fruit and the winemaking experience of Alana McGettigan, part of the Kiwi-Oeno team is all part of the process. Click here to see earlier reviews of Mt Olympus wines. Here's more…

Tuatara Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Marlborough

17-/20
The prehistoric tuatara reptile, which this label is linked to, can still be found on Stephens Island in the Marlborough Sounds. Made from fruit from varied vineyard sources in Marlborough, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., and 3.3 g/L rs. Very pale straw-yellow with a very pale edge, this has an intense and tightly expressed nose of pungent passionfruit with fresh herb notes. Dry on palate, this is a finely proportioned and elegant wine with good intensity and some concentration of passionfruit flavours. The acidity is fresh and provides liveliness and good cut, and allows the fruit to be the feature. The wine has a soft, sustained finish. Match with seafood, poultry and vegetables over the next 2+ years. 17.0-/20 Jul 2011 RRP $11.99
