$15, 5 stars, 92 points, marlborough, new zealand, Sauvignon blanc
We drank this Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc at my WSET wine course and I recognized the name and bottle. Looking it up I realize that Moxie and I had drunk some of the 2012 Spy Valley on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Bali back in 2013.
This one is medium lemon colored with pronounced aromas of cut grass, asparagus, passion fruit, lemon, blossom and grapefruit. It is still youthful. Dry with high acidity I got medium (+) flavors of this medium bodied wine. Medium alcohol and a long finish with a juicy ending. Rating it 92 points and 5 stars cause you can grab some for $15. Drink with a crisp salad, a light pasta or even grilled trout. I would enjoy this wine till 2025. Salut….
