Nice and gentle Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from Marlborough Valley! Freshness, white flowers and green apple with a well reached balance of acidity and soft minerality; slate!

Nice almost greenish wine with hay and passion fruit aromas. Balanced and light. Perfect for hot weather. Served really chilled ;)

Light yellow in color with a green hue.

On the nose grapefruits,
grass, citrus, lemons, green apples and bitter herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs. Crisp and refreshing.

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

Medium finish with bitter almonds.

This Marlborough sauvignon blanc is refreshing and crisp with mouthwatering acidity and a nice finish. Very much like a spicy grapefruit juice on the nose and palate. Better than their Rosé, though.

Needs to be very chilled. I paired it with cheeses, dried fruits and nuts.

13% alcohol by volume.

85 points.

$13.

Tastes like straight grapefruit juice. Easy drinker but not a lot going on.

Grapefruit, lemon candy, peach, apple, hay and slate. Electric acidity and great minerality.

New Zealand all the way! Grassy notes but not over powering! Only slightly grassy on the palate! I get more Granny Smith than anything. A very light Sauv Blanc!
