Pale and very light. Lots of mineral bite and grassy notes. Tropical grass is there but the mineral overwhelms. Not my favorite. 2013 Vintage.

Not bad for Sauv Blanc from New Zealand. Has the melon nose, lifesavers and fresh sweet bell pepper pallet.

Lime zest, guava, passionfruit - highly aromatic. Finish is a little rough, bitter like citrus pith.

Very light, crisp, and more like white grape juice than wine. Not for me.

My favorite light wine, I feel like it's grapefruit-y and fresh. I haven't had a meal yet that I feel it doesn't go well with. My current go-to no matter what mood I'm in.

This is one of the best Sauvignon Blanc wines I’ve tried in ages. What makes it even better is the price. Extremely refreshing and light. Apple and grapefruit notes. Exquisite.
