This is a typically snappy New Zealand Sauvignon featuring mildly vegetal aromas along with the required touch of cat pee and grapefruit. Bold lemon and tangerine flavors comprise the citrus palate, which leads into a tangy acid-driven finish full of lemon and grapefruit. Tart, juicy and pleasant.
Smells of vegetable oil and farm-fresh sweet corn still in the husk, but the flavors are more like what you expect from a Riesling: green apples and underripe Asian pears. The finish is a bit metallic, but otherwise features fresh lime zest.
