Sacred Hill Whitecliff Sauvignon Blanc 2006

  • Area: New Zealand, Marlborough
  • Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
  • Alcohol: 12.5%
  • Rating: Black; 89 Dilettante; 88 The Z; 90

Description: Ok, some aficionados call that "herbal, grassy, wet hay" nose cat piss. Oh my, the power of a word. The experts, as described in The New York Times, consider this aroma a very good thing. All joking aside, we really liked this wine. It's crisp and fruity with giggly flavors of pineapple, apricot and grapefruit. The light acidity is balanced nicely with a hint of sweetness.
Food Pairing: Sole Florentine
Musical Pairing: Yellow or Gentle Giant
