With: Seafood is my favourite but also with chicken
I wanted to start with a what I call a "safe wine" and by this I mean that it is likely to appeal to wine lovers as well as people who only occasionally have a glass, without being overly expensive.
It is zesty and tangy (the citrus is the winning flavour in this wine) but not in an overpowering way and compliments seafood and chicken dishes, salads or is refreshing in Summer with a cheese platter.
I am not a fan at all of sweet whites wines so this blend for me is a refreshing, crisp, dry white wine. Also I am sucker for a pretty bottle and this one doesn't disappoint. Oh and did I mention that it comes from my home town, Orange, whilst I think New Zealand will always be the home of amazing Sauv Blancs this one is definitely up there!
