Kauri Tree Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014.

It’s summer and you fancy something light, crisp and citrus to go with your seafood salad on a hot day, what better than a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Hawkes bay. This is exactly what I was thinking when I picked up this Kauri Tree Sauvignon Blanc 2014 from Sainsbury. Not only that but at 12% alcohol it is relatively light on alcohol too. I really like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc so I was looking forward to this one nicely chilled:-

Remarks: My hopes and expectations for this wine were fulfilled; a very pleasant summer wine with citrus tones which you could drink on it’s own or with food – Tuna or other seafood perhaps with some delicate spices mixed in. Drink now or store for up to a year. Go out and buy some before winter sets in 😉
