Wine Review: Your prototypical Sauvignon Blanc, Hay Maker is everything we have come to love about New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. This wine opens up with tangy, citrus fruit notes that range from your tarter Meyer Lemons to the more round and tangy white Grapefruit. The finish has that unmistakable New Zealand acidity - a more ripe citrus style compared to Loire Valley white wines. The flavors linger for a bit of time on the finish, making the Hay Maker an easy grab-n-go wine. Enjoy - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Color: Pale straw. Nose & Palate: Lifted notes of fresh grapefruit, guava and nettles. The palate is fresh with concentrated fruit flavours. The grapefruit and tropical notes continue on the palate while the lively acidity gives the wine its crisp, mouth-watering finish. Serve with seared fish with Asian spices.

Organic status: not organic
