A 2017 Sauvignon by The Sisters in New Zealand

2017 Sauvignon Blanc from The Sisters in New Zealand

Last night we enjoyed a  2017 Sauvignon Blanc  produced by The Sisters in New Zealand. The wine was a light yellow color with a light green hue. The aroma reminded us of a tropical fruit salad. The taste included notes of papaya, pineapple, mango and  citrus-especially grapefruit. The mouthfeel was smooth yielding to bright acidity. Food pairing suggestions included: chicken, salads, seafood and Asian cuisine.  The wine had 12.5% alcohol. 

The front label of the Sauvignon Blanc features an image of a woman in black leaping up with excitement.  On the image is written, “‘I achieve many things every day. Say it., believe it, celebrate it. This is our time.”

We paired the Sauvignon Blanc with crostini, a sliced baguette topped with a combination of cheese, green onion and butter. This easy-to-prepare appetizer would pair well with many white wines.

The Sisters website provides recipes the following recipe for a Sauvanilla Cocktail which uses the mouth quenching Sauvignon Blanc.
