Wine Review: We recently went to a wine pairing dinner at the Mountain View Grand in NH and this NZ Sauvignon Blanc was one of the winning wines of the evening. This light yellow wine opens with the traditional gooseberry like bouquet with hints of grapefruit. On the palate, this light bodied wine was balanced, with slightly tart lemon lime like flavors with a touch of grapefruit and minerality. The finish was dry, refreshing, but brief. This wine went well with our yellowfin tuna and papaya appetizer. You will also enjoy this bargain wine by the pool on a hot day this summer.

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Light yellow in colour, with green tints and brilliant clarity. Aroma: A bouquet of ripe grapefruit, kiwifruit and pineapple. Palate: Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is a charming, elegant wine, displaying intense varietal character. Crisp and refreshing, with vibrant flavours of ripe citrus and tropical fruit, the palate has excellent weight and length.
