James Suckling 92 Points
A wealth of ripe tropical fruits, passion fruit and lime. Immense power with poise. This has a dry finish that brings focused lime citrus to the fore. Drink now.
Wine & Spirits Magazine 90 Points
Juicy and clean, this is bright and floral, more tart, vegetal and mineral than sweet and ripe. Refreshing.
Wine Spectator 89 Points
($19) A crisp, juicy take on fresh peach, apricot and pineapple flavors, with good intensity and hearty acidity, finishing with white flower details. Drink now.
Vinous Media 89 Points
Lively aromas of lime, quinine, pepper and gingery spice. Dry and chewy, with lemon and lime fruit flavors complicated by dusty herbs, pepper and salty minerality. In a distinctly serious style for a sauvignon blanc from this estate but smooth and seamless nevertheless. I particularly liked the combination of fruit sweetness and salinity. Finishes with noteworthy persistence.
The 2013 Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc begins with pale straw color in the glass followed by a bouquet of herbs - sage, oregano, black pepper, with green ginger and a grapefruit/ tropical fruit background. On the palate, the initial feel is full and soft. Layers of fresh fruit unfold to more savory notes and an invigorating finish.
The brand name Spy Valley is derived from the presence of a satellite communications monitoring station within a few kilometers of the winery. Situated on the sunny southern side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley, nestled on the terraces of the Omaka River are the vineyards of Johnson Estate. Established in 1993 by the Johnson family, Johnson Estate was one of the pioneering vineyard companies in the Marlborough sub-region and remains family-owned. Eight varieties of grapes grow over 380 acres of free-draining, stony soils producing exceptional fruit for Spy Valley Wines. In ten years, production has risen to place Spy Valley as one of Marlborough's leading family-owned companies. Youthful and exuberant wines are crafted using modern winemaking techniques by winemaker Paul Bougeois and his team.
