Another great summer sipper. Lots of citrus and lemongrass. In a blind tasting I would guess New Zealand so if you like that style this is a great alternative. I would assume it's widely available.
At first, I thought this was a Pinot Grigio, the herbaceous scents of green grass and dandelion. On sipping, I knew I had a Sauv Blanc by its crisp acidity, medium-light mouth-feel and flavors of tangy lime. The finish turned slightly sour but not entirely unpleasant.
I really like how smooth and 'creamy' its texture was. Such light spice and grassy notes. It was very nice when chilled.
