Tuatea Marlborough (NZ) Sauvignon Blanc

Tuatea Sauvignon Blanc U.V. | Wine Info
Trader Joe's always has several good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines on the shelf, and this is my favorite. From the first sniff, it displays power and personality. And it goes with a wide range of meal options, including spicy Mexican fajitas from Valentina's in Comstock, MI.

Medium deep yellow. Aromas are slightly influenced by oak but still display distinctive Sauvignon Blanc traits. Grapefruit with subtle passion fruit tones. Same on the palate. Full fruit, dry with powerful acidity. A Trader Joe's bargain at $6.99; for my taste, better than those costing a dollar or two more.
