Wine Thursday: Sisters Ridge North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc

posted on May 31st, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Most Sauvignon Blancs that hail from New Zealand have Marlborough as a point of origin. This mouth-watering gem comes from the lower region of the south island, North Canterbury, which has a cooler climate, producing brisk acidity and minerality. This aromatic Sauvignon Blanc combines lime citrus, tart apple and cut grass characteristics on the nose. The palate is dry but very fruity; quite full-bodied, and finishes with lime/mandarin notes and grapefruit-like acidity. Pair this Kiwi beauty with shellfish, chicken dishes and anything that uses goat cheese in the recipe. Suggested Retail $14.99 Sale price is 2 for $15.00! Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! Promo valid from May 30 All selections are 750ml unless otherwise noted. No rain checks.
