2017 Uenuku New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

The growing region for this acidic and minerally Sauvignon Blanc is defined by maritime influences and alluvial soils, and the end result is a fresh and vibrant expression of the variety, with high-toned tropical and stone-fruit aromas and flavors. Crisp and driven, this is a perfect aperitif, but would make a bright companion for light shellfish and salads as well.
