Kono Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Save $3.00 (20%)

SKU 03209


A brilliant pale green in the glass, this pure and bright Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit driven nose bursting with passionfruit, grapefruit, melon and gooseberry. On the palate luscious fruit flavours of citrus, ripe tropical fruits, and lifted herbaceous notes are finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness. Juicy, crisp and fresh this wine leads to a long and dry, persistent finish.

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.
