I tend to agree with my buddy Matt Kramer who maintains that the single most reliably tasty wine in the world is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. What that means to me is if you buy a bottle for $15 - $25 you almost always are going to get something that a) tastes like you expect it to and b) is delicious (assuming you like the way that NZ Savvy tastes). This here bottle is no exception to that rule with its passionfruit, green apple, and cut grass aromas and more of the same delicious green fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is all kiwi fruit and green apple and the acidity bright and mouthwatering. This was a press sample.

Peaches, sweet pear floral in the nose. Acid on the first sip but quickly goes away with fruity finish. Perfect chilled and in warm day. Excellent value.

Wow, Passion fruit and Gooseberry on the nose then a same perceivable tropical fruits on the palate with balanced, tasty acidity
