Another great value. Nice New Zealand SB. Pale straw color. Fragrant nose of grass and grapefruit. Green apples on the palate, with nice sauvignon blanc acidity. Clean and refreshing. Very nice wine. 92/92. WS gives it a 91.

Yours for $11 at Foodie's shop, Is-Wine, in NYC. That is, if there's any left--I bought this 1.6.01. Foodie?

He still has that one RAD. It's one people come back for (including me!).

It's $12, but who's counting. ...Must have been your discount RAD.

Fabulous wine it is.

Well, I finally popped mine tonight. Had it with a very modest shrimp scampi and petite pois. It was wonderful, even at its age. The acidity was just great, and the residual flavors made it one of the very few wines I wanted to drink all night.
