The nose hit me with some green pepper (fairly characteristic of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs), cut grass, and a little bit of citrus.
The citrus came through well on the palate: there was, most notably, lemon and/or orange zest, along with a little bit of grapefruit, maybe? The acid on this wine was solid and balanced the slight mineral/stone notes that peeked through on the palate.
I think this wine would pair well with grilled shrimp or a delicate fish. The Twin Islands is not the best Sauvignon Blanc you’ll ever have, but at around $13, it’s a nice serviceable white for cooling off during the warm summer months.
