Pale in color with a nice grassy nose, leaping up at you. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with nice grassy notes along with citrus flavors. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely crisp acidity, and maybe even some pineapple. This is a typical, food friendly, New Zealand sauv blanc. I would give it an 88 or so. The LCBO say Aromatic and Flavourful and couldn’t agree more!
