Nice crisp sauvignon blanc; goes well with light cheeses and shrimp
This SB was a little muted for my taste preferences in what I've come to expect from NZ SB. There were some gooseberry flavors, but not much herbaceousness, which was disappointing. Acidity was not as zippy, either. At the price point, would not buy again.
A crisp, peppery white, with notes of green bell pepper, citrus (lemon / lime) even some young tart grapefruit. A tad acidic, so much more lovely when paired with a light meal. Finish was long and it held up to other earthy flavors, such as portabello mushrooms. I paired it with Artichoke stuffed raviolis that were topped with a beure blanc sauce, portabello and fresh spring peas. Added some thyme which brought out some grassy aromas on the wine itself. The wine is rather dry, so food will soften the palatte. Enjoy!
a bargain for the price (under $11) and easy to drink. dry and fits description, "...intense fresh citrus and bell pepper flavors...zingy acidity." versatile uses- made a beurre blanc sauce with it and drizzled the sauce over a baked kona campachi

Wine Enthusiast ReviewNicely concentrated, with dense fruit flavors packed into a refined package. Melon, fig and grapefruit aromas and flavors finish long, picking up hints of smoke and herbs.
