Top Value Sauvignon Blanc Tasted August 2013

2. Fire Road Sauvignon Blanc (2012)

« Prev Next » 2 of 9
Average price: $11.97 from 1 store
Aromatic with plenty of roasted chili notes that are well integrated into some citrus and pineapple aromas though this does pick up some cooked pea aromas with air. Bright and vibrant on entry, this offers real cut on the palate with lovely lemon, pineapple and grapefruit flavors that show a bit of that vegetal aspect on the backend and through the moderately long finish where it becomes more apparent but never rises above the fine, juicy citrus flavors. Not going to blow anyone’s mind but this is fairly classic NZ Sauvy. 87pts
