Matua Sauvignon Blanc 2009 review by (PB)
Grabbed this from Trader Joe's for $12 and this one is pale yellow with a wonderful pronounced, grassy, grapefruit and guava paste bouquet that provokes salivation.
Palate--Solid grassy, citrusy, grapefruity, Sauvignon Blanc flavors on a foundation of racy acidity that will cut any grease, butter, or fat right off your palate as you eat.
This is classic New Zealand (Marlborough) Sauvignon Blanc and is a good food wine especially with heavy buttery foods. Raise a glass!
