2017 Au Hāro New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Intoxicating aromatics of passion fruit and white peach waft from the glass, followed by more of the same on the palate, along with lime and a hint of green herbs. An elevated acidity and minerality provide additional drive and energy to this fresh expression of the variety. Enjoy a glass on its own, or sip it with fresh oysters for a sublime pairing.

Did You Know?

The slightly fizzy, soda-like red wine Beaujolais Nouveau is produced with a process called carbonic maceration. The grapes are placed into the tank and the door sealed, so the carbon dioxide that's a byproduct of fermentation cannot escape.
