Wonderfully balanced and probably at its peak. Medium (+) acidity, medium (+) mouthfeel, medium-bodied, nice clean finish. Very tasty, great by itself of with a warm goat cheese salad with walnut oil dressing.
Citrus, chalk, and crayon aromas. (Bitter melon, T.E.D.? Hmmm, that might be it!) Non-blind, I could smell the gun-flint. Attacks and finishes with pungent grapefruit. Thin sauvignon blanc mouthfeel but full of presence with lively acidity.
Interesting that so many people found this flabby. I found it fairly lean and mean, though less so than many good New Zealand sauvignon blancs.
