Winemaker's Notes

Upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavors of melon, passionfruit and crisp acidity.

Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes or summer salads.

Critical Acclaim

"Decant this wine to get past its initial reduction and you'll find a generous, citrus-scented sauvignon, its aromas ranging from Kaffir lime to fresh tangerine. The reduction shifts toward flintness, adding an edge for roast scallops or any roast fish. Best Buy."

Very enjoyable. Love the green notes. My "house" wine. Found locally for only $12.99 however.

Excellent Sauvignon Blanc, very surprised it was so good because it was so cheap. Wait for this one to go on sale though, it can be had for twelve bucks elsewhere.

This is an excellent example of the varietal as developed in New Zealand. Racy, ripe tropical fruit balanced by the tang of bright citrus. I have recently gone back to liking a more subtle style, but a few years ago this wine was pretty exciting to try. If you are not familiar with the New Zealand style this is a good place to start. I have never tried decanting it, maybe that would enhance some subtleties that I missed.
