Sweet, but not too sweet. Fruity, but not too fruity. This is such a pleasant wine to drink on its own or with a meal! Very glad to have found this!!

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!

Nice, fresh, refreshing - what you would expect from a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Tropical fruits, citrus, a bit of grassy. Good bang for your buck.

Textbook citrus with peppery nose. Tingly lime on the top of the tongue with crisp acidity and grapefruit finish.

Pale straw yellow, but don’t let that fool you. Powerfully aromatic, with green fruits and peels, jasmine, green citrus, new hay, musk melon. Tart and fruity on the palate, with more musky melons, green fruits, and decadent flowers. A big ka-pow of a nose, a big mouthful of a wine. It's not for everyone. 13% abv | $15.50

For the price, an incredible bargain. Crisp, citrus taste. Very drinkable. Surprisingly, it holds the taste over several years. This is a 2014 vintage drank in 2019.
