Arona Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Member Review by 40somethinglife:

I am not normally a fan of Marborough Savignon Blancs. For some reason they all taste like metal to me. This particular wine was brought over for a dinner by one of my friends but not drank so I thought why not try it out (alone.) Well, why not it was already chilled and a screw top meant I could have one glass and put it back in the fridge, which of course I did :). The Arona Sauvignon Blanc is almost water clear in color with just a slight greenish glow when in the light. Clean and sharp on the nose with aromas of pears, grapefruit and fresh herbs with a hint of basil and perhaps parsley - at least that is what I was getting. On my first taste I got melon and a citrus tang on the palate. The taste was as clean as the aroma but with a crispness and a finish of smooth creaminess on the tongue. A zing of tartness stays with you sip after sip - this is an interesting and easy wine. I think I liked this wine more than most Marlborough wines because it was less agrgressive. I would definitely buy it again for a nice every day wine.
