2005 Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough ($10)


December 14, 2005|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This dry white wine from New Zealand is delightfully fresh and made to be drunk young. It offers vibrant and penetrating flavors of gooseberry, sweet pea, lime, mineral and herbs. While it's very much a "fun" wine, it is also very skillfully crafted. There's no shame in serving it to anyone but the rankest snob -- and you don't want to drink with that fellow anyway.

Serve with --shellfish, light-flesh fish, finger food
