Goose Island

Kim Crawford

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

Dry on the palate with medium plus acidity. Nicely balanced and crisp with mild complexity.

Showing limes, grapefruits, lemons, citrus, green apples, gooseberry, light tropical fruits, spices and white pepper.

Good right out of the bottle and better when properly chilled.

I paired it with Ahi Tuna Sashimi.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Whitehaven

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale straw with green edges and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with floral herb notes. On the palate ripe apricot, peach and pineapple with lemon zest, classic New Zealand SB. Vivid acidity and spice complement this well balanced wine to a medium finish. — 14 days ago

Marlborough Chardonnay 2018

balanced, long, intense and complex.
but my heart felt nothing, and i tried hard.

100% chard
11 months in oak (15% new)
21% passed malolactic conversion.

herbs, citrus, green apple and some hinted oak characteristics.

maybe it's too juicy for my own taste.

Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with floral notes. On the palate flavors of grapefruit, green apple and pear fruit flavors with some grassy tones, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending with fruit, herbal, floral, grassy and mineral notes. Lightly chill so you can experience all of the nuances while you sip this fine wine. — 13 days ago

Summer in a Bottle Long Island Rosé Blend 2020

From the Zachy’s summer sale, and it’s been a few years since I’ve had this. Sour cherries, slightly butter-y, flowers of some kind? It’s not really grabbing me 🤔 — a day ago

Another really good non-sb from NZ. Trampled lillies. Honeysuckle. Orange blossom. Its very floral nature is integrated well. Pollen. Lychee. Background of slate. Another to try aged. Lots of character- — 5 days ago
