2013 Oyster Bay Sauv Blanc

I love Sauv Blancs. They are super food friendly versatile wines. New Zealand make some terrific ones, albeit a bit on the pricer side. This one is an essential meaning it is regularly available. Pale in color with a lovely nose of pink grapefruit. On the mid pallet the wine has pink grapefruit and citrus notes to match the nose. The wine has a medium length finish with some lovely mouth grip. An excellent Sauv Blanc. I would give it an 89 or so.
