    August 7, 2021 - This one was a screaming rush of grapefruit and acidity. Paired well with Moroccan lime-cumin chicken. Not as solid as I remember it.

    April 18, 2021 - A wonderfully aromatic wine, with a nose full of fresh cut grass, grapefruit and lemon zest.  Continues with an expressive pallate which has a lively but not overbearing acidity, and flavors of grapefruit, peach, and notes of river rocks. While I haven't found a NZ Sauvignon Blanc I didn't like, this one is definitely a cut above. It was a perfect pairing for a seasonal favorite, fresh ramp pasta! ($11) [4/18/21]

  • Not a Somm Does not like this wine:

    April 6, 2021 - This juice tastes awful. By far the worst SB I've ever encountered. Nevertheless, to be fair, I'm reviewing it based on WSET standards rather than my own personal preferences. The wine is a medium gold in color with a high intensity of aroma. The nose is composed of intense blackcurrant leaf, grapefruit skin, fresh cut grass, under-ripe apricot, green bell pepper, flint, and mint. The wine is dry with high acidity, med ABV, med body, pronounced intensity of flavor, and a med(+) finish. I think I'll stop there.
