Classic Kiwi Savvy nose here: herbal yes, but not too grassy. Incredibly mouth-watering and juicy with fresh notes of lime, lemon and white grapefruit. Hard to believe the alcohol level is so low with so much flavour here, but yay!  Try this with fresh seafood or shellfish to keep the other doctor away ;)

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: salads, seafood, pasta with cream-based sauce, pizza, guacamole.

All of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes that went into this New Zealand white wine were grown in vineyards with excellent drainage along the Wairau River. where gravel soils dominate. New Zealand is a cool climate country, but this particular region tends to be even cooler on average so the grapes tend to ripen later than other regions and develop more complex flavours as a results. It's amazing that this wine only has 9.5% alcohol. - Community Wine Reviews
