My favorite Sauvignon Blanc! Bursting with vibrant grapefruit with a mineral bite. Excellent!

I have tasted this wine in Chinois Santa Monica and really enjoyed it. It is the best Marlborough 2009 I have tried so far. In my opinion the taste is a combination of currant, green apple, light fruits and some herbs tones.

With 75,000 cases of this wine now coming to the U.S., it has to be one of the more ubiquitous New Zealand offerings. Thankfully, the quality is very good, with ripe nectarine aromas and flavors touched by just a slight varietally correct grassiness. Long and mouthwatering on the finish.

Bright, pale straw. Knockout nose combines lemon, lime, pear, melon, flowers, licorice and jalapeno, with a spicy ginger quality emerging with air. Then deep and fresh on the palate, with juicy pineapple and grapefruit flavors complicated by a hint of crystallized citrus peel. There's an element of varietally typical herbaceousness but this wine is ripe, balanced and long.

Bright, pale yellow. Slightly high-toned aromas of gooseberry, jalapeno and kiwi. Juicy and tactile, with pungent, rather uncompromising sauvignon flavors of citrus peel and pepper. The dusty finishing flavors of spice and jalapeno have real bite. Not for the fainthearted, but this rather extreme style of sauvignon does not lack for sweetness of fruit.

Intense passion fruit and citrus aromas blast from the glass, leaving no doubt about the intensity. Thankfully, it's harmonious as well, blending ripe notes of melon and fig with strident citrus flavors and a hint of jalapeño on the finish.

This full-flavored, medium-bodied wine is a must try! It offers up lime peel and gooseberry with a hint of herbs in the glass. In the mouth, it bursts with currant and ripe citrus, followed up by more gooseberry. It has a nice, clean finish that is quite refreshing. Wonderful for sipping in the warm summer days!

Racy style offers pear and black pepper aromas and flavors, finishing with a tart edge. Drink now.

Tart, with bright lime and green pear aromas and flavors that point nicely through the zingy finish. Drink now.
