Good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc can make you forget that any other wines exist. Intoxicating aromas and transfixing flavors overpopulate your senses so quickly that it takes a mouthful of grilled shrimp to bring you back to reality. Marlborough's plethora of quality vineyards may have cornered the market on these out-of-body Sauvignon Blanc experiences (if Whitehaven's luscious bottling is any indication). Green peach and grapefruit aromas take the offense while juicy passion fruit flavors blaze through the finish. Those unacquainted with the Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc experience are encouraged to start here with gusto, uncorking a bottle of this with freshly limed seafood tacos.
