|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Quite inviting on the nose - nectarine, mango, tropical fruit, rain kissed thriving herbs - rich and flavorful - great mouthfeel and a lovely pungent acidity, lingering finish. Most enjoyable!
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This handcrafted Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from a small family winery packs a big punch. Aromas of ripe tropical fruit give way to zesty flavors of lime, peach and herbs. This would be great paired with a plate of creamy seafood pasta.

|This Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, South Island, Sugar Loaf (2016) is a family-owned winery in the heart of Marlborough's Rapaura region. They specialize in small batch winemaking. The name Sugar Loaf is a nod to the islands that lie off the Taranaki Coastline, where Sugar Loaf winery founder, Kate Aceland, grew up. The islands are the earliest remnants of volcanic activity in this region, but today act as a marine reserve for sea birds, fur seals and penguins. - Community Wine Reviews|
