The wine has an herbal nose, not New Zealand herbal, though. There is some grassiness in the pale golden liquid, but it is well accompanied by grapefruit and tropical notes. The palate is so fresh, it'll make you happy if it’s hot outside. Chill this wine and take a few degrees off the thermometer reading. The aforementioned grapefruit and tropicals show up as flavors, with a hint of stone fruit in there. The minerality is crisp and the acidity is zippy. The wine somehow makes me want a cold black sesame noodle dish to go with it.

Great Sauvignon blanc! Right there with Whitehaven. Better than Mondavi. Grapefruit and melon with cut grass nose. Goes well with seafood.
