Huia Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Lemons, quince, and grassy notes on the nose
Lean and focused on the palate
Mineral and citrus layers on the finish
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc rarely disappoints. Here's a well-regarded producer who delivered exactly what I was looking for to compliment my Portuguese seafood stew last night. It has a nice citrus core, good acidity, and is focused in flavor.
This wine is priced at $20, but you'll likely see it marked down a bit from that. The cozy neighborhood restaurant I stopped in to last night with my wife had it priced at $28, which was a good deal. Raise a glass!
