Review of 2009 Matua New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Happy Hour: 2009 Matua New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

When the weather turns cool, I normally gravitate toward red wine. However, the other day, I was enjoying a rich and delicious pasta with mushrooms and anchovies that begged for a crisp white. Thus I opened this bottle, the 2009 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Matua. It tastes young and grassy with a citrusy aroma and zippy finish. The liquid is straw yellow in color with a creamy body and delightful acidity. I drank this wine slowly because each sip was truly enjoyable. At just $9, it's a real steal!
