Natalie's Review

Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand: Like the elephant, you won't forget this wine: it's spring sunshine in a glass (just after you've mowed the lawn and are now enjoying a lazy hammock). A superb effort for this vivacious, refreshing white with notes of fresh-cut grass, asparagus, straw and limes. Terrific juicy acidity. Try not to trample smaller creatures in your rush to buy this one. Vintages Wine Panel: The playful label has the texture of elephant skin. Almost platinum in color. The aromas suggest green pepper, rosemary, white asparagus and green onion. Dry and impactful on the palate with fresh acids and good vegetal tones. Medium-bodied and medium finish. 96644 12% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100. January 31, 2009  Full Review
