Te Kairanga Sauvignon Blanc 2004
from Martinborough, New Zealand
As a region, Martinborough's name is becoming known worldwide, with outstanding international wine awards, particularly for classic varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Though small by world standards, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough's largest wine producers, and a leader in striving for quality.
This Sauvignon Blanc displays a light straw color with a subtle green tinge. It has lively ripe fruit aromas of capsicum and citrus with an underlying hint of riper pineapple characters. The palate is fresh and crisp with firm acidity giving good balance, structure and length. This wine is ready to drink now. Enjoy as an aperitif or with chicken, fish, shellfish, oysters, salmon, salads and pasta.
"Loads of pepper and spices are intermingled with candied grapefruits in the nose of the 2004 Sauvignon Blanc. A fine value, it offers a rich mouthful of apricots and gooseberries in a fresh, silky, medium-bodied, balanced format." 87 pts- Wine Advocate, Robert Parker

If you want to enjoy a very complex, interesting and full bodied Sav Blanc, I can't think of anything better than this one. I spent every sip trying to identify the many interesting flavors. You won't be disappointed.
