Very tropical in classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc fashion. Grapefruit and fresh grass highlight this smooth and savory sauv blanc. Mild peppery finish with overtones of tropical fruit. After drinking a third of the bottle, we put it in a pitcher and kept it in the fridge for a few hours before coming back to it, which did wonders for the flavor. It opened the wine up quite a bit, and we all agreed it tasted much better the second time around. I recommend opening and letting it sit before drinking.

Crisp, refreshing, with big citrus and mineral notes. Nothing delicate about this Sauv although I do appreciate the boldness and acidity in this wine.

Typical NZ sauv blanc. Grapefruit in spades and jalapeño to boot.

Clean, crisp, and extremely fresh. But pretty much Grapefruit.com.

A little disappointing for an NZ SB, but very tart and crisp.
