In a nutshell: Gleamingly bright and aromatic Southern Hemisphere Sauvignon Blanc.
The lowdown: Juicy and fresh with a gooseberry, grassy nose, a racy acidity on the tongue and a long lively finish. The very definition of a good Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, except - full disclosure and despite appearances - this one comes from across the Pacific in Chile. It goes to show New Zealand doesn't have a stranglehold on the style and this one effortlessly measures up to the standards set by their cousins back across the ocean. By early harvesting Aconcagua fruit grown near the coast and prompt bottling, all the primary characters, flavours and freshness are preserved, ready to shine when poured into the glass.
There's a Polynesian heritage that Chile shares ranging right across the south Pacific and the label on this wine celebrates that by depicting the country's farthest flung outpost - the tiny islet of Motu Nui just off the coast of Easter Island.
When to drink: This is easy-going anytime quaffing and a good wine to drink with simply cooked fish or grilled chicken,
