The most wonderful wine to pass your lips! Fun, delightful, and exciting!
I have tried several of the Australian whites including the Yellow Tail, but this was the first New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that I recall trying. The scent (nose?) was dry and I could pick up the faint scent of kiwi and possibly some berries. Upon tasting, I really liked the lightness of the wine and the faint flavors of fruit.
I've tried many, many different Sauvignon Blancs and this is my favorite, by far. Great balance, crisp acidity and super nose.
Good New Zealaand Sav Blanc, the winemakers notes are pretty much right on, you can expect that wen you taste it. I put it on my wine list and personally for the price I would buy Kim Crawford (and KC sells better, a little cheaper) but all in all a good purchase.
Lots of NZ character. Grassy, gooseberry, great acidity. The finish is quite spicy with notable capsaicin which some will love and some will hate. Its a little too aggressive for my palate.
