Wine Review: This almost clear colored Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant ripe pink grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, crisp and shows pleasant acidity. The flavor profile is a very likable ripe lime and grapefruit blend with pleasant notes of minerality throughout. The finish is dry, refreshing, and lingers nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is made for seafood. Broiled crab stuffed halibut came to mind. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Imagine a refreshing sorbet-like medley of fresh lychee, grapefruit and honeydew melon laced with flinty minerality and finished with an infusion of mandarin and lime zest. A lively, invigorating wine with persistent grapefruit flavours and a steely blackcurrant tang – crisp but succulent with a long enduring finish.
