Kennedy Point Sauvignon Blanc
Kennedy Point Vineyard
New Zealand - Marlborough

Kennedy Point's Sauvignon Blanc captures the essence of the regional fruit. The grapes, grown in the hot, stony soils of the Wairau, produce a wine redolent of fresh cut wild flowers and a full palate of passion fruit, gooseberry and citrus. Crushed and pressed in stainless steel fermenters to preserve the vibrant aromatics and fruit, then fermented slowly at cool temperature to maintain freshness.

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This Waiheke Island-based winery sources its Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough. The result is a rather leafy, slightly vegetal wine that's reminiscent of tomato stalk and celery leaf, yet remains refreshing and pleasant, with a strong citrus core. Try it with ceviche or simple broiled sole. - Joe Czerwinski"

wa88"This 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough area offers outstanding value. Crisp and fresh with a hint of herbaceousness intermixed with notes of wet pebbles, melon and caramelized citrus, it is medium-bodied, surprisingly long and very well-crafted. Consume it over the next year. - Robert Parker"
