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.

By far my favorite Sauvignon Blanc! Definitely has a crisp citrus framework with strong passion fruit flavor. Sweet but not too overwhelming

I don't like it as much as some sauvignon blanc. A little sweet and maybe acidic?
