New`Zealand Sauvignon Blancs - Mini Wine Review

Fault Line Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2012

This is a crisp wine, flavors of a summer fruit salad without being too sweet. Goes well with grilled fish such as mahi mahi, cobia and swordfish as well as grilled chicken.




Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Very similar to the Fault Line but with more of a citrus aftertaste. Not too sweet, just enough to compliment the food.




You can’t go wrong with a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc so I would take either of these wines paired with a seafood dinner or a risotto. Pressed to pick one I would go with the Fault Line. Just a slight edge. Reasonably priced at under $15 a bottle.

Cheers!
