To me, spring is meant for crisp, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines.
 
My favorite from last spring was the Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc from longtime Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd.
 
 
The wine is a very light, pale, straw color.  The crisp and clean nose has grapefruit, minerals, lime, lemon zest, white pepper, gooseberry, and a touch of an herbal note.  This has a light body with tart citrusy acidity.  On the palate tart grapefruit and white pepper lead off with lime and lemon kicking in on the back end.  The finish is long and mouthwatering with minerals and an herbal note joining the citrus and white pepper.  A stunning wine for a warm afternoon with or without food.  (92 pts)

    Here in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia we have had the William Fevre paired wonderfully with Chinese style steamed Garoupa and the Greywacke was magnificent with day fresh sashimi. O it can be hard in the tropics...
