Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: This exceedingly pale wine, virtually colorless with just the merest hint of green and gold, exhibits the fresh grassy and citrus aromas typical of this New Zealand varietal. The palate is crisp with considerable minerality balancing the citrus, primarily grapefruit, flavors. The finish is somewhat weak and but not disappointing. A good choice for an aperitif or with appetizers. Our score: Considering how expensive New Zealand sauvignon blancs have become recently, this isn't a bad choice for under $10. Above Average.
