Wine Review: This almost clear colored wine from Greywacke is very very good and one of the top Sauvignon Blanc's that I covered this spring. It is a classic New Zealand style. It opens with a fragrant lime and grapefruit bouquet with notes of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, quite acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty mild yellow grapefruit with hints of lemon and mild minerality. The finish is dry and shows very nice length. This Sauvignon Blanc would be perfect with Emeril's grilled swordfish kabobs with herb pesto. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: A musky fusion of sweet scented fruits - nectarines, peaches and nashi pears with a dash of orange zest - intermingled with a floral perfume reminiscent of star jasmine and citrus blossom. A generous palate with citrus and cassis flavors, deliciously ripe and succulent, finishing with that classic Marlborough zing.

Organic status: not organic

Part 2 - The holiday season is a time for decadent desserts and dessert wine. Mirror flavors – pair pumpkin pie with late harvest Gewurztraminer.
