Tonight's wine of choice is the 2017 Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.

The nose reveals notes of grapefruit, kiwifruit, guava, papaya, jalapeño, herbs, lemongrass and wet concrete.

On the palate there is pronounced notes of lime, grapefruit, kiwifruit, melon, celery and salty minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with medium to plus acidity that lead into a medium to long clean, refreshing, salty minerality with citrus finish. I hope everyone's weekend was a good one and we all look forward to the week ahead. Please be safe and make the week a positive one. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Too much acid and grapefruit for me. Better with food but sour on its own.

Smooth, good fruit/acid balance, not too heavy

Surprising minerality, fresh and pronounced, blend nicely with herbaceous green pepper and subdued tropical flavors. Lovely acidity in the finish.

4/19. I have almost zero experience with white wine. This was clean and crisp. Not as tasty the closer it got to room temperature. But, it paired well with the quiche and lobster tail for Easter brunch.

3.3. An excellent Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, very tasty, not too tart. A few dollars more expensive at $19.99, regularly $21.99.

Trop sec et avec un arrière goût de pierre à fusil! Pas à mon goût.

Loved this wine. Crispy notes with great acidity and a crazy unique flavor profile. Totally a keeper. Loads of apricot and lime zest flavors. Paired this with a seafood salad and it mapped perfectly.
