Steve Bird Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2006

Member Review by Dionysis:

The Wine: Each time we try this Steve Bird Marlborough Sauvignon, it seems to get better and better. Full bodied and packed with flavours of citrus; lemon and grapefruit, there are delicious complexities to the palate with superb depth of flavour too. Its always rewarding to find Sauvignon that shows real balance, as this does, poised between fruit, alcohol and pure lithe acidity on the finish. Suggested Food Match: There is enough flavour and palate weight here to enhance any number of fresh, summery dishes. But the one that stands out is beautifully simple and a true kiwi tradition. Snapper fillets, pan fried in butter and fresh squeezed lemon juice - or lemon beurre blanc if you're so inclined. A perfect combination of richness, freshness, delicacy and lightness.
