A little sweet. Buttery. Decent wine to serve with company.

I really really like Monkey Bay's SB. A lovely crisp bite has a light hint of sweetness. So refreshing and awesome for a great deal under $20!

A touch acidic but for the low price it's a great pick.

Nice green flavors that you'd want in a NZ SB, but a little too light in texture. Prefer Fernlands SB.

So tasty! Off-dry and great acidity. Strong notes of tropical fruits, specificly tangerines, grapefruit and nectarines. Also getting those green vegetal notes and wheat grass. I really enjoyed this wine and it was very inexpensive.
