Wine of the Week - Kono 2010 Sauvignon Blanc


This wine popped up in my usual grocery store and was so unusual that I had to check it out. Unusual because I've never encountered a New Zealand wine before, and also because of its appearance - it's nearly as colorless as water.

The nose is very sweet, with the slightest hint of table salt.

Oddly, the overwhelming sweetness of the nose is not present on the tongue. This wine tastes of citrus fruits, mostly lemon, with an aftertaste of dry grapefruit. Unexpected and enjoyable. A good value. Don't hesitate to pick it up.

13.5% alcohol
