A blend of fruits from the Awatere, Waihopai, and Lower Wairau Valleys gives this Sauvignon Blanc the classic Marlborough fruit burst with great palate weight and a clean, acid finish. This wine is wonderful with all types of seafood; Try the wine alongside summer salads and poultry dishes.

nice nose of peaches, apple.....medium bodied with hints of grapefruit, nice citrus.... lingering finish...
Smelled of grassy citrus with hints of some tropical fruit. Light and dry with light citrus and grapefruit, Good balance and medium acid.
The year I turned 21 this kept me company throughout the summer and really got me going on drinking wine in general. For starters I loved the fact that is was inexpensive. I also like citrus notes
This is a fun wine to drink on its own on a hot day or with shellfish. Classic fruity and grassy sauvignon blanc. Crisp, light, and refreshing.
kinda dry but not too dry with a very nice subtle hint of pear at the end .
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Kono Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
The only wine from New Zealand actually made by the native Maori people, Kono Sauvignon Blanc is more lemon-lime than grapefruit, although it still has that fresh grassiness for which the grape is famous. Zesty and refreshing, itrsquo;s the perfect porch-sipping wine.

As close as it gets to biting into a perfectly juicy Granny Smith apple, with a wonderful purity and mouthwatering acidity. This is also extremely smooth, with lime peel and grapefruit flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now.
Fresh peach flavors brighten this juicy sauvignon. With its floral scents of honey and beeswax, as well as a creamy texture, it feels broad and rich. Chill it for poached salmon.
