Wine Review: This straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand opens with a fragrant grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, tangy and slightly sweet. The flavor profile is a ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of apricot and a hint of lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. This crowd pleasing Sauvignon Blanc will pair nicely with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.
