This is not your typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! If served blind, I would probably guess the Loire Valley in France (the ancestral home to the grape). Light green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is great with lots of yellow grapefruits along with a bit of peach and minerality. Light to medium bodied. Nice balance. On the palate, again, lots of yellow grapefruits with some peach and underlying minerality. Very clean and refreshing finish. This drinks great on its own and will work well with lighter foods and especially sea food. Drink over the next few years.
