This wine screams “Hey, I’m from Marlborough, New Zealand!”

Lime, passion fruit, and grapefruit flavors abound, plus the obvious and outrageous Marlborough grassiness and a hint of white pepper on the finish.  The fruit and non-fruit features integrate seamlessly in what is an excellent example of the NZ style of sauvignon blanc.

Super fresh tasting with firm acidity, I just can’t believe this wine is less than 10 bucks. It very much reminds me of the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, but has a lower impression of sweetness than the KC 2007. Absolutely one of the great values I’ve tasted this year.

13% alcohol, 91 points.
