“A horse walks into a bar, the barman says, why the long face?”
Haha Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011 – $
No long face here…In the sun, this wine is the lightest, lightest of yellows, with the clarity of a brilliant-cut diamond. It shows precise varietal aromas of pear and melon; and later, dew grass and tomato stalk. It is at first crisp and sharp in the mouth; then dry, and mouthfilling with granny smith apple and honey flavours. Generous finish, perfect with Tarakihi.
No joke. On a sunny late afternoon like today, stunning.
