Added Jun 28, 2008 at 4:47pmI bought this bottle and a bottle of the 05 Chard on a whim from my mother. Although not as intense in acidity or citrus flavor as my favorite New Zealand wines, it has a greater flavor and balance than the typical California SB. I find most California SBs to be extremely light and washed out, like cheap Pinot Grigio. It was not overly acidic or overbearing with any particular flavor. Nothing jumps out at you either, it is just a nice, balanced light white for a warm summer day. While not as great a value as the NZ SBs, this was a good bottle at $12.99, better if you can get it for less.

Added Mar 1, 2008 at 7:29amValue priced Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough Region of New Zealand. Typical of the New Zealand varietal, although lacking some of the fruitiness found in others in the price range, like Nobillo.

Added Dec 23, 2007 at 12:40amThis is on my short list of wines to keep around the house. Light and fruity, slightly acidic. If you are looking for a good value white and are tired of the taste of oak saturated californian and australian Chardonnay, give this a try. More intense than many west coast Sauvignon Blancs, it is reminiscent of a good Sancerre at half the price.
