makara Marlborough, NZ 2011 Sauvignon Blanc

makara Marlborough, New Zealand 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, $11.99-$19.99, 90 points.
The color is clear with light lemon tones.
With fresh-cut grass and gentle, but toasty lemon, the nose is quite nice.
A light body carries good acidity, is dry, is moderately tart on citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit. The finish is fair and is a continuation of the palate.
I paired this most satisfactorily with fried oysters, and at the low power-buy price, New Hampshire white-wine lovers should grab a few bottles.
