WINE OF THE WEEK

March 19, 2003|By Michael Dresser

2002 Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough ($10). This bright, fresh white wine is more toned down than some of the more radically herbal New Zealand sauvignon blancs. (I like them, but they're definitely an acquired taste.) That doesn't mean it sacrifices character. It's herbal enough, and it offers a deliciously fresh, sweet pea flavor and generous fruit. This wine would be well-matched with white-fleshed fish or shellfish, and its bargain price ensures it will have broad appeal.
