Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc 2021
2021 represents another stellar release from Sidewood, the wine has piercingly pure tropical fruits set against crushed herbs on the nose and a palate that has intensity of fruit that is met in equal measure by crunchy, textural acidity. The fruit focuses on passionfruit, with a finely filamented citrus acidity bringing the wine to life and framing excellent length that lingers with boysenberry and subtle peppery green herbs.  Date Tasted: June 2021; Drink to: 2023; Price: $22.00; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points; Patrick Eckel; The Wine Reviewer

Deep Woods Ivory Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2021
This wine would be my $15 steed for a joust with sauvignon blanc or sauvignon blanc blends from Marlborough and anywhere else in this side of the ditch, its tapestry of citrus and passionfruit covering most contenders at prices soaring above $20. Drink to: 2023; Price: $15.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2021; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 93 Points, Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2021; James Halliday Wine Companion
