Mount Riley Sauvignon Blanc 2009
New Zealand – Marlborough, South Island
A pale yellow-green, this reputed wine offers an enticing blend of aromas—citrus, tropical fruits and ripe gooseberries. It’s juicy and crisp, with the fruit aromas replaying on the palate. The finish is persistent and refreshing, displaying a tangy pithy note. It’s a bargain.
