Wine Review: This slightly cloudy pale straw Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand open with a lime and peach pit bouquet with a hint of petrol. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty lime with notes of minerality and hints of peach, white pepper and a touch of Honeydew melon. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly and versatile. It will pair with many seafood dishes. I would choose grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw with a slight green hue. Lovely refreshing green capsicum and ripe gooseberry aromas, with a herbal thread. Smooth textured with the vitality of flavor that New Zealand is famous for, followed by an array of dry, crisp & clean and mineral flavors that build. Offers great texture, balance and depth. A wine that speaks of the sea – fresh oysters or pan fried fish and waves crashing on the beach. Enjoy now and over the next 3-5 years.
