 Stock up winelovers because this is our BFYB (Bang For Your Buck) of the week! Here are a couple of ideas that come to mind when we ponder food partners:
  • Steamed artichokes with lemon aioli and zucchini fritters dipped into that same aioli
  • Fish and chips (the wine's acidity is perfect for it), or the Seven Fishes meal
  • Whole-roasted striped bass with potatoes and thyme
  • Spaghetti with anchovy carbonara (Wine Diva favorite)
  • French Le Roule cheese
Cheers is the last thing we have to say on the matter.

Decanter: "A fresh and nuanced wine with an ethereal texture and lifted pea pod, lemon grass, gooseberry and aromatic capsicum character. The palate offers energetic acidity and a tasty flavour profile with plentiful zesty, saline, tropical, lime and green fruit characters. The finish is not a disappointment, the value phenomenal." 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards

Winery: "A brilliant pale green in the glass, this pure and bright Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit driven nose bursting with citrus fruits and passionfruit. On the palate luscious fruit flavours of ripe tropical fruits and lifted herbaceous notes are finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness. Juicy, crisp and fresh this wine leads to a long and dry, persistent finish.

Grapes for this wine are grown on a range of both Kono owned and managed sites, as well as from dedicated growers that are located throughout the main viticultural areas of Marlborough. The Waihopai, Awatere, and Rapaura sub- regions are all represented in this blend; and all bring a different flavour profile to the finished wine."

Fun Fact: A kono is a basket woven out of harakeke (New Zealand flax) which was traditionally used by Māori to serve food.
