Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Review

This Sauvignon Blanc manages to be classically New Zealand, but with enough restraint to surprise those staunchly opposed to this style of wine. Pungent, tropical, and aggressively green bell pepper-like on the nose, the wine is fresh and zingy on the palate, with tart grapefruit and a grassy, clean finish.
