Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This perennial classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has exuberant aromas of gooseberry, grass, cream of asparagus, jalapeƱo peppers and melon. It's intense and lively with crisp acidity and a lingering, slightly minerally finish. My note: One of my favorite New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, especially in this price range. Bursting with gooseberry freshness, lemon zest, passionfruit and lime. Medium-bodied. This one will wake up your mouth and stir your appetite.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: asparagus, grilled vegetables, salads, pork, poultry, salmon, steamed clams, pan-fried scallops, mussels and, oh yeah, oysters.
