Buy of the Week AU

Kaiora Bay Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, AUD $12

This pale-coloured Kiwi white has a pungent aroma of passionfruit, pawpaw and peppermint. There’s good varietal flavour and freshness, the acidity is balanced and not shrill. It avoids distracting sweetness, and the wine’s lightness lends it an easy quaffability. (12.5 per cent alcohol; screw-cap)
