This is the first 2012 Sauv Bl I've had from NZ and I hope it is not the harbinger of the vintage. The nose is nice with pungent gooseberry and gardenia flowers. The flavors are nowhere near as nice as the nose though. A bit dilute tasting with minimal extract and excess acid make for a so-so wine experience. Short finish- little fruit. Tasted again after one day of air- much better -- It opens up. My initial rating - 80 After air- 84

Fantastic deal for less than $10. Not too exciting on the nose, but very flavorful on the palate: tropical, pineapple, peach, ... Not too sweet, good acid. Nicely focused.

Considering serving this at my wedding. Fabulous for the price and so excited that I found this for $7.99 right before summer! Not too sweet, but not to sour with a hint of grapefruit.

Classic New Zealand Sauv Blanc.

<p>Straw-yellow in color with greenish hues, this wine has gooseberry, lemongrass, and herbal aromas that are characteristic of New Zealand wines. The palate is rather fruity and sweet before finishing on a tart, mineral finish. Best served as an aperitif or with seafood, vegetarian food, sandwiches and salad.</p>
