Spy Valley Marlborough NZ 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Spy Valley Marlborough NZ 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $13.59-$17.99, 91 points, was a light straw yellow trending clear at the glass shallows.
The wine body was light and crisp, appropriately acidic, the nose was gooseberries, and the flavor was pink grapefruit; cut and dry with no pretense; so, if you don't like pink grapefruit, then maybe you should look elsewhere, but if one the best Sauvignon Blanc wines with this cut and dry/straight forward character interests you, then give this one a try.
Finished long with gooseberries, just a hint of the 13% alcohol, lemon, and a hint of ginger.
Paired perfectly with Sea perch.

  1. Although I have a few favourite Napa SBs, I do like to go Kiwi on occasion.

  2. From coast to coast, SB is becoming more and more my favorite white wine!
