Don’t know a lot about wine, but does white wine need to breathe sometimes? We thought Sauv Blanc was our favorite type because we had our minds blown by a Mussels Bay at a restaurant once, but have had such bad luck lately. Running into an almost musty or sour aroma/taste with this one and a few others of similar price range that seems to get (a little) better after being open a while. Would love some guidance here

Lemon lime and grapefruit flavors. Seems a bit thin and watery and there’s an oily texture and finish that is off-putting. There are much, much better choices out there - at the same price point and even for several dollars less!!! Was free so I’m not complaining. Too much.

Classic NZ sauce blanc. Lots of lemon, grassiness, a bit of grapefruit. Nice clean mineral finish. A bit too much cat piss for me, and I wish the grapefruit were a stronger showing. Very good value.
