Wine Review: This Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand was our clear winner in our recent panel blind tasting. This very pale yellow colored wine opens with a metallic gooseberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is well balanced and slightly creamy. The flavors are mineral infused gooseberry with hints of grapefruit. The finish is dry and very refreshing. The panel thought this wine would pair well with bacon wrapped scallops or grilled tuna. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Mugwi has a lifted and complex nose with fresh currant and gooseberry aromas, some pungent bell pepper nuances, and a hint of grapefruit pith. The palate is full and fleshly with a lively, electric acid finish.
