Kono 2016 (New Zealand: Marlborough)

Name Kono 2016
Varietal Sauvignon Blanc
Region New Zealand: Marlborough
Notes "A sizable 70,000 cases of this bargain were imported, so it should be reasonably available. The citrus fruit does have a greenish tinge to it, boasting hints of passion fruit, snap pea and green onion, but they're within the bounds of regional typicity, and bring a crisp, tart edge to the finish. Drink now." (Wine Enthusiast) "Light and lively, with refreshing acidity that keeps the papaya, lime and pineapple flavors fresh and vibrant. Drink now. 175,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
