2016 Kirkland Signature Ti Point Sauvignon Blanc

Year: 2016

Producer: Kirkland Signature

Region: Marlborough, New Zealand

Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc

Alcohol: 12.5%

Price (approximately): $7

My Musings:

On the nose, the wine expressed subtle floral elements with grass, bell pepper and citrus (grapefruit and lemon peel). The palate enjoyed ripe citrus and bell pepper, with grapefruit becoming more pronounced as the wine warmed. Overall, the wine was light-to-medium bodied, very well-balanced, and did not contain the overbearingly bracing acidity that can be present in New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.

The Ti Point Sauvignon Blanc is a fine expression of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and at $7, the price is unmatched. It is as close to pilfering as one could hope to (legally) achieve. Buy, drink, enjoy. Repeat as needed.
