39°Below Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018 $17.95 

So fresh, frisky, vibrant and packed solid with lemongrass, basil, sweet lemon verbena notes, this wine also boasts buckets of passionfruit and nectarine on the nose and palate.  It’s a ripe and rumpty sauvignon blanc that’s so friendly and feisty, it’ll please even the fussiest sauvignon snob.  Paul McEvoy and his team have used fruit harvested from the sensational sun-trap known as Ohiti Road in the Fernhill area of Hawke’s Bay to create a snazzy, snappy-fresh sip indeed.
