Marlborough is New Zealand's most significant wine region and produces more than three-quarters of the country's wines. In the 1980s and '90s, Marlborough sauvignon blancs burst on the global wine scene and impressed drinkers with pungent aromas, tropical fruit, vegetal notes and crisp acidity. In the glass, it exhibits citrus, melon, subtle herbaceousness and lemon grass aromas. On the palate, taste grapefruit, lime zest, kiwi, stone fruit and a mineral character. Drink it with Asian cuisines, raw or grilled oysters, crawfish, mussels, poached fish, salads, avocados, asparagus and artichokes. Buy it at: Lakeview Grocery, most Rouses, Whole Foods Market on N.
