Winemaker Notes

#60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc has great aromatic power with aromas of violet, fresh pear, and white stone fruits. On the palate, this wine is generous and full-bodied with lush stone and passion fruits. A creamy mouthfeel is balanced by a crisp citrus acid drive and great length of flavor.

Pair Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc with arugula and feta salad, pasta carbonara or freshly shucked

oysters on a sunny day.

Smooth and rich with minerals and tangy fruit; fresh and long with layered complexity and a remarkable Old World quality

Medium-gold in color, this North Canterbury Sauvignon leads with a heady nose of guava, lychee, and pineapple, with soft aromas of grass and tomato leaf. There's a nice play on the palate between texture and prickly acidity, with plenty of tropical fruit and a long finish. It makes for an apt pairing with summery cuisine.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc is a charming and lovely wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows pleasing freshness and length on the palate. Its lifted aromas and flavors of ripe citrus and tropical fruits should pair well with a Hamachi and avocado roll. (Tasted: May 3, 2019, Treasure Island, CA)

Wine Spectator
Offers an appealing core of intense, lush flavors of ripe melon and peach, with details of white pepper, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit lingering on the finish. Impressive for the intensity and focus. Drink now.

Mt. Beautiful, New Zealand
Mt. Beautiful Winery Video

Mt. Beautiful lies in the heart of North Canterbury, on the South Island of New Zealand. The Kaikoura Seaward Mountains lie to the North, while the Waiau River borders us to the North as well. The vineyard rests under its namesake, Mt. Beautiful. Mt. Beautiful crowns the coastal range to the East, and protects the vineyards from the ocean winds. Located about an hour and a half north of Christchurch on Route 1, Mt. Beautiful Winery is on the Northern fringe of the North Canterbury growing region. Lauded by many critics as New Zealand’s most underestimated wine region, it’s a place that has begun to get some incredible recognition.    Mt. Beautiful’s wines are a stunning representation of the splendor of the region. The Sauvignon Blanc reaches through the herbaceous spectrum to carry flavors of tropical fruits, the Riesling is ripe with mandarin and citrus, the Pinot Gris is lush and exhibits a creamy mid palate, the Pinot Noir is soft, juicy, and inviting with a hint of cherry, and the Chardonnay is bursting with aromatics of ripe apple and stone fruits while finishing with a clean and crisp flint like minerality.

On the central eastern coast of the South Island, Canterbury includes a collection of small and varied subregions. The region is cool and dry with low rainfall and light, infertile soils. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are well-suited here, with Pinot Gris coming in third place.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
