New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

I feel so fortunate to live in Wisconsin, where this type of lake view is not all that hard to come by. This weekend I enjoy a new-to-me Sauvignon Blanc on the pontoon boat… It was a match made in heaven. The bottle said “enjoy in the sunshine” and I took that as a direct order.

This wine has sharp acidity with strong flavors of green fruits, which is common for the lower island region of New Zealand because of the cooler climate. It is tart and light with no oak presence. The color is pale and the sweetness dry. I enjoyed this wine quite a bit. It was perfect for a little sun and a lot of relaxation, XOXO.

As you can tell by the photo above, I have certainly been enjoying this warm weather :).

Last night I tried another white that matched perfectly with the sunshine. The back label describes this wine as having “bright aromas of fresh pink grapefruit that mingle with floral notes” and I fully agree. It has a nice amount of mineral balance and the finish is so yummy that you just have to try it for yourself!

Until next wine, XOXO.

Talk about a perfect wine for the spring season, this baby is it!!! It’s a half pinot grigio, half sauvignon blanc blend… “due uve” literally means two grapes so that is very fitting. Medium body with hints of citrus fruit and a balanced acidity on the finish. Not too sweet and not too dry. Loved it, XOXO.
