Bright nose of lemon, lime, and wet stones
Citrus on the palate
Finish of cut grass, lime, and grapefruit
This is a nice wine. It has the crisp citrus flavors that are expected from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but also an undertone of wet stones.
My sister shared this bottle with my wife and me, and she commented that it was the most flavorful dry wine she had ever tasted. I think that's a terrific description. I'm curious to see if other wines from the 2007 vintage in New Zealand have this dryness and undertone of minerals or stones.
I overpaid for this wine at $19. You should pay more like $15-16. Raise a glass!
