Vintages Wine Picks April 14, 2007

White Wine

Sauvignon Blanc 2006, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Vintages Wine Panel: This pretty Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and ripe with gorgeous lemon, gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas. It is dry, refreshing and bursting with fruit flavours that are well balanced with a seam of racy acidity. The crispness of this wine is a good match for tomato‚Äôs acidity. It also has a nice aromatic intensity to soften the spice of the dish. My note: Herbal and grassy goodness. A refreshing wine to welcome spring. Pair with: salads, seafood, shellfish, vegetarian. 651703 12.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 88/100. April 14, 2007 Best Value White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
