Rabbit Island Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2017

There is nothing like Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – it’s an exhilarating blast of aromas and flavor, and our man on the ground, Dan Parrott, prides himself on finding the latest and greatest releases from the country’s top families.

His newest discovery hails from the family-owned Seifried Estate (the oldest winery on the famed South Island). Their grapes ripened to juicy-fresh perfection in 2017, and because demand for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is higher than ever, you’ll have to hurry for your own taste ...

Named for an iconic Nelson landmark, Rabbit Island is a classic and lip-smacking example of the style. You’re in for intensely concentrated gooseberry and lime flavors, plus fresh-cut grass and zippy mineral notes. Makes for a refreshing aperitif and is a delicious match for shellfish.
