This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is classically styled. It opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit and gooseberry bouquet. On the palate this wine is light plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and lively. The flavor profile is a tangy yellow grapefruit and chalky minerality with notes of nectarine pit and lime zest. I also detected some hints of ginger and a dash white pepper. The finish is quite refreshing.
Showing its distinct Marlborough accent through grapefruit and lime, this stunning white has a zingy profile that keeps the mouth clean and refreshed. A garden of fresh herbs and star fruit lends another layer to the palate.
Floral and fragrant, with orange blossom, lemon sherbet and lime zest notes that are intense. The juicy finish features candied ginger accents.
The grassy, grapefruit-scented 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a polite, tame example of this classic pairing of grape variety and region. It’s medium-bodied, with just a bit of silkiness to the mouthfeel, and has a gentle, softly dusty textural element to the finish that adds a bit of interest.
The nose of this linear and bright white exudes a complex perfume of gooseberry, star fruit, and chapparal. Crisp flavors of grapefruit and kiwi are clean and dotted with tarragon and dill.
