Huia Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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!
