Wow, this was one of the better Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand that I have had in a while. Blind, I would have guessed this to be from the Loire Valley. Light gold in color. The nose has nice white grapefruit with a nice minerality. Those qualities contiue thru to the pa;late. It is ripe but well within reason. Excellent acidity. Long finish. My only complaint? I tried to buy some and was unable to find any.
