I had the pleasure of attending Kiwi Expat Associations wine tasting event here in Toronto. They featured a number of wines from New Zealand. In case you don’t know Kiwis are what New Zelanders call themselves. Ah the wealth of things you can learn here at CanadianWineGuy 🙂 And yet again, I do digress … This wine was the highlight of the evening. Pale in color with a lovely zesty nose of Pink Grapefruit. On the mid pallet the wine has pink grape fruit to match the nose. The wine is medium in length on the finish with the zesty acidity lingering nicely. This is a smooth well made, food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89. Very nice indeed!

Drylands Sauvignon Blanc 2013 — VINTAGES#: 675405
STYLE – Aromatic & Flavourful
A fresh lemongrass note lends some aromatic lift to the core of peach, Meyer lemon and Key lime flavors within. Shows nice purity and plenty of juiciness, with a lovely air of elegance. Drink now. Score – 89. (MaryAnn Worobiec, winespectator.com, June 15, 2014)
