    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and lightly pressed in order to avoid over extraction ofbitter tannins from the skins. The must was then fermented in upright stainless steel tanks at cooltemperatures for 30 days. The wine was filtered prior to bottling.

    Crisp and refreshing, characterized by ripe tropical fruit accents and some herbal notes. The wine shows flavors of passion fruit, kiwi and guava over a citrus background.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth and juicy, with fragrant lemongrass, thyme and fresh, grassy notes that mingle nicely with bright lemon-lime and tart green apple flavors. There's a nice balance of power and elegance. Drink now.

    Citrus deliciousness, but a bit sweet for a NZ Sauvignon Blanc.

    This is a very nice SB, but has only a hint of the mineral background common to this varietal in New Zealand. Letting it warm up a tad brings out a fuller taste profile of which lemon and apple are the most prevalent (for once, I agree with the reviewer). After paying $12 at Wine.com, I found it at my local grocer (H.E.B.) for $10. I bought 6 to qualify for an additional 10% discount - an absolute steal at $9.

    OK Sauvignon, not great. Good value though. I'd go with the 3 Stones over this.
