Natalie's Score: 88/100

Monkey Bay wines take their name from a small bay on the coast of Marlborough in the South Island. A legendary monkey was once believed to inhabit this secluded spot. Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from vineyards throughout the Marlborough region, including the Rarangi vineyard, just south of Monkey Bay. New Zealand enjoyed a particularly long, dry summer in 2008. Vibrant, zesty aromas of lime, chives, grass, lemongrass and green apples. Medium-bodied. Closed with a screwcap.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: fried chicken, roast turkey, caesar salad, grilled swordfish, turkey burger.
