Marlborough New Zealand.
91% sauvignon blanc, 5% viognier and 3% Riesling.

From the Craggy Range folks a very nice SB. Very pale light celery in the glass. Flavors of grapefruit and lime with hints of peach and mineral. The citrus is not laser beam focused as in some SB's, but subtle. The finish is persistent. 13% Alc/vol. Had it on special at my favourite haunt @ $9.99. Paired it with my "famous" seafood risotto and shrimp. Nice pairing.
