If you enjoy bright and lively white wines, you will love this Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. The region of Marlborough makes exceptional whites that produce fruit-driven, beautifully flavored and complex wines. The 2012 is a great example of what this region does well—a style that is crisp and zesty with a good dose of grapefruit, citrus and melon with a slightly spicy undertone. You would be hard pressed to find a better wine for the price—the huge quality-to-price-ratio (QPR) will keep you coming back. With its broad culinary applications, you’ll be sure to find a pairing you’ll love—try anything from grilled chicken to shrimp, fish tacos and sushi.
