Have you ever picked up a shriveled passion fruit – one that looks
like it’s ready to toss in the compost bin – and then sliced it open and
slurped up its juice and seeds? That
wonderfully ripe, tropical flavor is what you’ll find in this zesty wine
from the Marlborough district of New Zealand. This is not complex
Sauvvie; there’s no minerality here. But there is bold NZ character and
refreshing acidity – and great value for the price. Look for the
starfish on the label, and enjoy this with grilled chicken or any
seafood, especially with a citrusy marinade or sauce.
