K&L Notes

A lovely, complex expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Classic fruit flavors but with an intriguing flinty, mineral note that really makes it stand out from a crowd. Top notch stuff at direct import pricing.

    Looking for a bright, clean Sauvignon Blanc under $20? Look no further! Hand picked early to retain freshness, a portion of this wine also sees neutral barrel aging to add depth and texture on the palate. Refreshing and filled with crisp acidity, you'll find notes of Meyer lemon, starfruit and flint. Ideal for lighter meals, this would also work as an aperitif.

    It's pretty clear that our NZ buyer Ryan Woodhouse is trying to put Sancerre out of business. The K&L staff loves the mineral-rich, crisp and clean flavors of French sauvignon blanc, but it's tough to justify spending $25-$30 when Ryan brings something incredible like the Fromm La Strada SB for $16.99 and it scratches that same itch. This wine is absolutely delicious, piercing with acidity and food-friendly flavor. It's a sauvignon blanc I would put in a top tier category, but our direct import pricing makes it seem like an every day deal. Don't be fooled, however. Serve this at an upscale dinner or a special occasion, but save some serious cash.

    Another facet of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has subtle concentration and richness, minerality and great cut. It is not your typical lush, grassy Sauvy, in fact we sell Sancerres that can only dream of being this good!

    Really special Marlborough Sauv Blanc with concentrated citrus and yellow stone fruit flavors. Crushed herbs and pronounced flinty minerals add lovely complexity to the wine that has exquisite balance and persistence on the palate. A very fine example of why NZ Sauv Blanc is so celebrated.
    Top Value!
