New Zealand — Marlborough • $17.95 • WD Score 88/100

This is a pleasant, mainstream Marlborough savvy, with the firm acidic structure that defines the genre. There is an edge of smoky reduction on the initial nose, then notes of cut grass with a hint of green beans, all leading to a core of white grapefruit and green apple fruit. The palate jumps with life, as the bright fruit pushes the grassy-herbal notes underneath. The finish lingers with a grapefruit-tinged essence. An excellent value indeed. • Tasted 2018-01-06 • LCBO id#981670 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • KIRKWOOD DIAMOND CANADA PARTNERSHIP (Agent)
