Kono Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandKono is a reliable, native producer of Kiwi sauvignon from Marlborough. The attack is bright and fresh, laced with guava, passionfruit, and citrus. The style is fruit-driven, but the trick is halting the fermentation with a touch of residual sugar left to balance the palate and finish. Expect a bit of candied grapefruit in an otherwise mostly dry finish. Serve with a charcuterie plate, or freshly steamed mussels. Fine value in an introductory NZ sauvignon blanc.Tasted: 16 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.99 BCLS Producer: Kono BeveragesDistributors: Stile Brands
