Starborough 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough


This friendly, easy drinking white wine is atypical of New Zealand’s best known variety, but it’s refreshing. For those

unaccustomed to the zippy, tart flavors of classic Sauvignon Blanc this provides a great starting point. It offers bright fruity flavors of pink grapefruit, nectarine, and ripe melon, which makes it tasty as an aperitif and a cool choice for hot summer nights. Serve this with chilled shellfish, cold summer salads with fruit or vegetables, or clam pizza. At just $12 retail at BevMo!, it’s a very good buy.
