One wine to rule them all, one wine to watch JRR Tolkien's trilogy! Grassy but not too herbal, just enough to get you to Mordor. Pour Gandolph a second glass and listen to his wisdom. It will require that you leave the Shire.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken and sage skewers, fresh tomato and basil salad, Thai green curry fish, fresh oysters on the half shell with lemon and horseradish.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

You don't have to go to the ends of the earth to find a true New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc . The nose bursts with familiar Savvy B attributes of fresh grass and herbs on the first whiff. Behind those aromas are floral, citrus, peach, honey, and minerality. The palate is fresh and clean with mouthwatering acidity. A lingering refreshing finsih. Perfect for seafood of salads. Enjoy now.

A great example of NZ Sauvignon blanc with the usual grassiness, canned pea and gooseberry aromas, as well as lime, and more pineapple and honey than many other Kiwi SBs. The mouth feel is also a little rounder than most but the high acidity is not sacrificed. A great summer sipper, although at 14% ABV, you'll have to pace yourself.
|Produced by Winelord Ltd. (not Sauron), yes this is a wine named for JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, which was filmed in beautiful New Zealand (and has since generated an estimated $100 million extra revenue in tourism as a result). Middle-Earth Vineyards was established originally more than half a century ago as a dairy farm. In 1996, the owners converted to grape farming and launched their first wine in 2012. - Community Wine Reviews|
