Wine Review: This light straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a lime zest and mild grapefruit bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright, round, and fresh. Similar to the nose, it features a flavor profile of tart lime and grapefruit with notes of stony minerality, kiwi, and saline. I also detected a hint of ginger. The finish is dry and refreshing. Everyone that tried this wine liked it. I would pair this very good Sauvignon Blanc with swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Distinctly Marlborough, this pure and bright Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit driven nose bursting with citrus and tropical fruit. On the palate luscious flavors of lemon zest and guava combine with notes of currant leaf and fresh bell pepper. Finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness this crisp and fresh wine leads to a perfectly long, dry, and persistent finish.
