Drylands Sauvignon Blanc 2007
The Drylands winery is located in Marlborough's Golden Triangle in New Zealand. This light yellow colored wine, that was harvested in April 2007 and bottled in August 2007, BURSTS with peach, passion fruit, honeydew and green apple. In fact, there is too much citrus on the nose. The exotic fruits on the initial taste is overbearing. It is a fuller bodied Sauvignon Blanc with heavy acidity, but not a long finish. The wine was less expressive after being open for awhile (2nd glass). Wine Enthusiast gave this a 91 point rating. For my taste, I think this is an agressive rating. Worth the try at $15 but I would pick the Villa Maria, Seresin or Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blancs from the Marlborough region of New Zealand instead.
