The wine has an herbal nose, not New Zealand herbal, though. There is some grassiness in the pale golden liquid, but it is well accompanied by grapefruit and tropical notes. The palate is so fresh, it's makes you happy if it's hot outside. Chill this wine and take a few degrees off the thermometer reading. The aforementioned grapefruit and tropicals show up as flavors, with a hint of stone fruit in there. The minerality is crisp and the acidity is zippy. The wine somehow makes me want a cold black sesame noodle dish to go with it.

Great Sauvignon blanc! Right there with Whitehaven. Better than Mondavi. Grapefruit and melon with cut grass nose. Goes well with seafood.

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

Nice nose of lemons, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, minerals, spices and white pepper.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and creamy.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, bitter vegetables, herbs and white pepper.

Medium plus in finish with bitter almonds and herbs.

This is a nice Californian Sauvignon Blanc. Well balanced, creamy and simple. A little bitter for my taste, but better with food.

Needs to be properly chilled.

I paired it with spicy chicken wings.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
