Pale in color with a nice smooth grassy nose. On the mid pallet this wine has some nice grassy flavours to go along with the nose along with some mild citrus flavours. The wine is on the lighter side of medium finish with some mild sweetness. The flavours build nicely in the mouth. A smooth well made albeit lighter New Zealand Sauv Blanc. This is a very food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89.
