$11-$12 Retail

Grapes for this distinctive Sauvignon Blanc were sourced from Marlborough's Awatere Valley on the northern coast of New Zealand's south island. The area's cool nights and dry days, along with temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation and aging, preserve the fruit's freshness and regional varietal character. The wine offers aromas of lime peel, grapefruit, green apple and grassy notes followed by vibrant flavors of kiwi, melon, citrus and a lovely minerality. Drink it with grilled shrimp, peppery dishes, asparagus, artichokes, seafood and spicy Asian cuisines. Buy it at: Elio's Wine Warehouse, Cork & Bottle, W.I.N.O., Breaux Mart in Uptown and Schiro's Market and Deli. Drink it at: Orleans Grapevine, Mosca's, Felipe's Taqueria, Dooky Chase, Charlie's Steak House, Vincent's Italian Cuisine, Kim Son, Franky & Johnny's, Russell's Marina Grill, Andrea's, Brick Oven Cafe, Zeke's, Riccobono's Peppermill and Wit's Inn. — BRENDA MAITLAND
