Reviews

Kritiker über Rippon Sauvignon Blanc 2019James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com): 94/100 Very intense and vividly fresh aromas of passion fruit and lime with a little edge of mineral. The palate has a very lithe, juicy and succulent feel with bright passion-fruit, green-peach and mango flavors. Focused, dry and fresh.

 

Kritiker über Rippon Sauvignon Blanc 2019Wine Front: 94+/100 The whole shebang for making seriopus white wine, despite how people often approach the variety in NZ. A different animal. A high pedigree one. Scents of pecan nuts, ripe citrus, green apple, wheat biscuits. Fleshy in the palate, rolls with authority, firm grip but a juicy core and layers of citrus, stone fruit, nutty flavour. Such a delight! So much to sink one's teeth into.

 

Tasting note

A beautifully styled sauvignon offering vibrancy as well as refinement; the fragrant bouquet shows rhubarb, nectarine, citrus, green apple details and light herbal notes, leading to an elegantly weighted palate that is finely textured and persistent.
