Medium-bodied and showing a touch of sweetness in the mouth, it has ample apple and herb flavors, though it finishes a little abruptly and simply. Drink it now to 2015.

The 2012 Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc opens with notes of grapefruit peel, lime leaves and freshly mown grass alongside touches of dill seed and capsicum. Medium-bodied and offering a great intensity of citrus and leafy flavors, it finishes long and refreshing. Drink it now through 2015.
