Winner of the night from the Legend Imports wine dinner at Peasant featuring a variety of beautiful wines from Australia that are not mollydooker penfolds or yellowtail.
This wine was described as Australian Montrachet and boy was that right. Anyone tasting blind would’ve picked burgundy.

Herbaceous, limey and farmy with sulfuric undertones on the nose. An interesting sauv to come out of Marlborough, in light of the late grassiness in the nose characteristics that evolves into green bell pepper. Lime hits the palate back in the upper throat. Strikingly clean crisp tart yet creamy foamy oceanic wave of lime. Electric complexity across the entire palate. Saltiness akin to margaritas yet I'm suddenly craving yellowtail sashimi after a day of surfing, even though I don't surf! Lengthy and intense, this is a foody's sushi wine on a beach day! — 4 years ago
Just brightness in a bottle. Had at Morimoto In Vegas with a variety of foods (steak, pork belly, and yellowtail) and held it own with all. Melon and sweet lime. — 3 months ago
Excellent along with the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Kinda cheated and went sashimi as opposed to cooking and some shellfish. Caviar/cockles/mackerel pate/octopus sashimi/salmon sashimi/yellowtail sashimi/tuna sashimi/stir fried clams. The extra “fish” hopefully makes up for the cheating ;) — 2 years ago
Tart appley yet petrolic nose. Smells like dancing through a rainy granny apple orchard on a crisp fall morning! Refreshing lemon delight! Beautiful forward astringency and minerality that lifts with slight sweetness just before finishing delicately and softly floral, a surprisingly whispered closure for such bright opener. Clean with delightful complexity.
Pairs beautifully with spicy poke, wasabied yellowtail sashimi, curried Indian cuisine... or with turkey dinner! — 4 years ago
