Vidal Reserve Hawke’s Bay Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2014 $19 ★★★★Villa MariaRES_Saub_Blanc HB Organic

Aromas of basil and lime, passionfruit, pepper and lemongrass lead to crisp, crunchy acidity, a burst of citrus and oodles of tropical tastiness on the finish.  Sourced from an established, high quality vineyard block outside of Hastings, this is a snappy, succulent example of sauvignon from the northern climes.
