Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand showed very well with the Tasting Panel. It opens with a grapefruit bouquet with hints of lemon and green melon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, nicely acidic, bright and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe pink grapefruit with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of lemon verbena and lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Panel suggested pairing this very nice Sauvignon Blanc with grilled scallops or oysters. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A delicious fusion of ripe summer fruits and delicate floral perfumes - citrus blossom and elderflower entwined with nectarines, white peaches, mandarin and cantaloupe with a twist of lemon. Intensely flavored, succulent and crisp with a delicate herbal infusion - quintessential Marlborough.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
