Top 10 Summer Wines 2017

Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Tropical fruit is the predominant flavor of Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2016

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Origin:
North Canterbury, New Zealand

Price: $16

Typically, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is known for its pungent odors and grassy, tart palate. Ah, but Mt. Beautiful, in the heart of North Canterbury, on the South Island of New Zealand, produces anything but typical Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is pure flower garden, and the predominant flavor is tropical fruit. It's no pushover, mind you, but the acidity has been tamped down in favor of a rounder, creamier mid-palate experience.
