Ascension “The Passion” Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2006

passion I decided I felt like a Sauvignon Blanc this evening, and since I had the Ascension one in the fridge it lucked out.  In fact I lucked out too, since it is a nice drop.

This is a beautiful pale straw coloured wine that, as its name suggests, is strong in passion fruit flavour and a refreshing change from the predominant gooseberry flavour of New Zealand Sauvignon.  There is still a touch of acid present that nicely balances the wine.

To the nose, it has a hint of kerosene and alcohol but it is not overpowering.

Drinking well now.
