Pleasant wine. Weak flavor. Worked with the Asian food.

The best Sauvignon blanc wines are from NZ. If I drank my wine slower or this was a special dinner wine, this wouldn't be my go to. But relaxing on my own, with my girls and drinking a bottle - this is a fave!!!

The best way I can describe this is "watery". Flavors are overall subdued, and tastes as though it's been watered down. Not terrible, but I wouldn't buy again. There are far better New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs that can be found for only a few dollars more.

Bought to cook with and sipped along the way. Has all the acid and NZ SB flavors you would want buy all in muted and flat tones. Not bad for the price.

One of my favorite inexpensive SBs. Very citrusy light flavor. Almost tickles the tongue. Slight grassy smell. I don't pick up a buttery flavor or texture like some of the other reviewers.

Love the acid and mouthfeel. Very crisp, starts off very vanilla for me.

Tropical notes, passion fruit and pineapple. Refreshing acidity and medium body. Great value and example of a NZ sauv blanc.
