Accolades

91 POINTS. A terrific example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, the 2009 Swamp Block features ripe melon and nectarine fruit, balanced by hints of garden greens, such as tomato leaf and bell pepper. It’s plump and succulent on the palate, with a long, slightly honeyed finish. Editors’ Choice. —J.C. Wine Enthusiast USA (Sept Issue 2010).
