Huia Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2006
Marlborough, New Zealand
$17.99 BC Liquor Stores (delisted)

Reduced from $24.99 (but now sold out), the Huia Sauvignon Blanc was a steal if you happened upon a bottle in early January. Intense gooseberry aromas in the glass with bright papaya and citrus notes. Concentrated pineapple and lime on the palate with the requisite herbaceous, grassy hint and a refreshing, almost effervescent acidity reminiscent of SweeTARTS candies. Definitely a Best Buy at $17.99, but if it retuns at its old price of $25 I’d recommend others first. 88 points
