Spice Route Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Pale in color with a nice grassy, citrus nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the wine has some lovely grassy notes to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp acidity. The wine is very reminiscent of a New Zealand style sauv blanc. Very food friendly I would give it an 88 or so.
