Another example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that has been toned down in vegetal intensity from say 5 years ago. I think they are using trellis techniques to get the grapes riper, avoiding a lot of that herbal green flavor, which is just fine with me. Very distinctly New Zealand never the less. Lots of grapefruit, other citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Nice mineral earthiness. Full and complete in the mouth. Refreshing, but not overpowering acidity. Crisp long finish is begging for some food.
(13.5%) Like the Veramonte from Chile this one has proved to be a consistent winner from vintage to vintage. This is a forward wine with bright gooseberry flavors and a mouth coating (mineral tinged) lemon, lime acidity that leads to a crisp, dry, tangy finish. A pucker bomb for sure! This is certainly an excellent value for the price. A perfect summer wine or pair with the ceviche dish of your choice.
