Giesen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Giesen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014: Pale yellow color; lemongrass, tropical fruit on the nose; very crisp, fresh lime, citrus, pink grapefruit, blades of classic Marlborough grassiness throughout; medium body, lean, dry with undercurrent of ripe-fruit sweetness; cutting, food-friendly acidity; lingering finish. New Zealand put well-priced, astonishingly food-friendly sauv blanc on the world wine map, and the three Giesen brothers—now beginning their fourth decade as major players in the effort after immigrating from Germany in 1981—consistently deliver large quality in large quantity (no easy feat). This is widely available, fairly priced, and a can’t-miss default pairing with almost any food you put on your table. Tasty, true to Marlborough terroir, another Giesen success. $14Giesen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
