Ferngreen Sauvignon Blanc 2011 wine review by (PB)
This Marlboro New Zealand creation is pale straw with immense grassy, guava paste nose with a lime foundation.
Palate is full of citrus, cut grass, lemon/lime, with solid acidity that finishes well with a long lasting S. Blanc flavor.
Trader Joe's value wine at $8 and if you love really grassy S. Blanc this is a classic NZ offering. This would make a great wine to introduce the grape-type to someone who wonders what S. Blanc tastes like. It may be too much for some but I loved it so raise a glass.
