Kono Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Wine SpectatorLight and lively, with refreshing acidity that keeps the papaya, lime and pineapple flavors fresh and vibrant. Drink now. 175,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastA sizable 70,000 cases of this bargain were imported, so it should be reasonably available. The citrus fruit does have a greenish tinge to it, boasting hints of passion fruit, snap pea and green onion, but they're within the bounds of regional typicity, and bring a crisp, tart edge to the finish. Drink now.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is delicately scented of green apples, fresh sage and lemongrass. Youthful, pure and uncomplicated in the light-bodied mouth, it is a lovely understated example for everyday drinking.
