Appearance: pale straw lemony yellow
Aroma: fragrant and aromatic grapefruit and nectarines, stony edge and mineral, hint of smoke, and floral
Palate: medium body that comprises some fair length of complexity. Dry with crisp and balanced acidity. Tropical fruits on the flavour. Some lemon, herbs, and forest floor. Chalk and mineral stone.

A wine to drink now with fading life. Fairly priced New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This is an easy to drink one. Clear cut acidity and lack of after taste heat are really accessible. Smooth and cool with fine nose character. Only if complexity and charm are not so interesting, otherwise a classic cool climate Sauvignon Blanc. It can be really good with white fish dish, asparagus, and raw fish. Drink up now if you have in stock. Cheers!!!!
