There’s no mistaking the varietal here: this is indubitably Sauvignon Blanc. Lemongrass and pepper have the van, followed by a tropical/citrus dimension, and, lastly, wet riverine rocks. All those aforementioned notes recur on the palate, with the fruit taking up a little more bandwidth in the overall scheme of things. This has a tad more to say about what it is made of, than where it is from, compared with other Loire Valley Sauvignon Blancs, and so is a nice crossover wine for fans of domestic or Kiwi bottling of that varietal. Perfect breezy, light-on-the-pocketbook refreshment.
