Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant grapefruit and wet stone bouquet. It is easy to peg this one as New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a tangy grapefruit with notes of minerality and a touch of lime. The finish is rather dry and it is refreshing. This wine is would pair very well with Hawaiian pizza. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw with green hues. Intense and powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit, grapefruit and gooseberry leap out of the glass. A full, crisp and powerful wine showing intense flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant, with underlying gooseberry tones. This wine has a full yet elegant palate with subtle minerality. Well balanced acidity provides a long, lingering finish. Perfect for drinking immediately this wine will be at its best over the next one to two years. This wine is an ideal match with antipasto, grilled seasonal vegetables or fresh seafood.
