Palliser Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Classic New Zealand sauvignon, this is packed with the flavor of passionfruit just coming into ripeness. The wine feels cool and generous in the middle, tightening to the floral precursors of a rose waiting to open. There’s a pithy twist to the finish, cedary and long. Serve with Nantucket Bay scallop sashimi.
