NEW ZEALAND - Sauvignon Blanc was first planted in the Marlborough Region, New Zealand, in 1973, Sauvignon Blanc is acclaimed throughout the world as the definitive benchmark style for the varietal. Oz Clark, one of the world's leading wine experts, summed up the impact of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in his Wine Atlas, "...a brilliantly successful wine style that the rest of the world has been attempting to copy ever since."

The Sileni "The Sounds" 2005 Sauvignon Blanc is na outstanding illustration of New Zealand's most popular varietal from Estate grown fruit in Marlborough. The 2005 "Sounds" won the coveted Gold Medal at the New Zealand International Wine Show, a Silver Medal at the China International Wine Challenge and a Silver Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Peter Saunders of Winestate magazine writes; "Pristine looking, this just bursts with powerfully pungent aromas of ripe capsicums and passion fruit. Deliciously mouth-watering and crisp, the intensity of this wine is stunning, and the silky, slippery textures lend refinement and class. The superb, long finish is a highlight. For a benchmark Sauvignon, one could hardly do better than this outstanding wine."
