2009 Kirkland Signature Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Marlborough region, New Zealand
WB Rating: 85

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $7.99 (Costco)
Type: Sauvignon Blanc
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

Good Sauvignon Blanc for the price, though it lacks the characteristic energy and pungency of the better New Zealand versions (for example, the Brancott Sauvignon Blanc for about the same price at Costco). This one smells and tastes to me more like a California Sauvignon Blanc - melon and citrus rather than grapefruit and bitter herbs. But it's flavorful and balanced, with an attractive tart texture, and a good buy. - HK 2010-08-25
