Sandihurst Wines, Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Marlborough, NZ

Sandihurst Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Pale straw colour with a slight greenish tinge. Prominent green bell peppers and fresh grapefruit peel on the nose. Plenty of citrus notes on the palate with a smooth,  rounded texture. Refreshing and crisp acidity for a bottle that’s considerably “old” by NZ standards. Medium finish. Excellent Saturday afternoon drink with the Panang curry (in a can) cooked with some chopped tomatoes, onions and chicken thigh. One of my pod-mates happened to make some naan this morning and the warm, soft and fluffy bread really soaked up the gravy. Not the best pairing I’d admit but I didn’t feel like drinking beer  you see 🙂
