Wine Find


August 12, 2009|By Michael Dresser

New Zealand sauvignon blanc can be a bit edgy, and this one isn't without a certain rambunctious character. But it doesn't go over the top, and it will give devotees of this style a jolt of bracing freshness along with its smoky, herbal, mineral-tinged flavors. There's also plenty of fruit here, with hints of lime, gooseberry and mango. It leaves the palate with good length and zip. Its very much a wine to drink now, while the evenings are still warm
