Wine Entry : Shingle Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2005 (New Zealand)


Got this bottle from DFS at S$34 just before the flight to Taiwan, drank it in Taiwan and found it to be exceedingly typical of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs meant to be drunk young. A vibrant and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc showing lifted gooseberry and pear characteristics. Nice wine to be paired with salads, seafood or poulty.

Smell : Fresh green vegetables, flora, buttery smell.

Taste : Water melon, lemon-acidity/aromatic.

After-taste : Slightly bitter with acidic finish similar to cucumber.

    I see that Each state has its alcohol regulation agency and maintains the right to limit wine shipments entirely or partially. I saw this on wine country basket is this true ?
