Prophecy Sauvignon Blanc showcases the best of New Zealand’s renowned Marlborough region. Aromas of grapefruit, lychee and lime zest lead to flavors of mandarin orange and green apple, followed by delicate notes of mineral and white tea.
The color is a very pale wheat yellow with a slight green tint. The nose is green apple, melon, lemon/lime, honeysuckle and unsweetened pineapple. It is a little grassy, but mild compared to some New Zealand Sauv Blancs. This is a bright fruit forward Sauv Blanc with solid, but not overbearing acidity. It tastes of grapefruit, lemonade, and ripe nectarine. The mid-palate shows lime, mild tangerine, and a little creamsicle (orange frozen ice with vanilla ice cream center). The acidity seems to be a little toned down, making this Sauvignon Blanc an excellent sipping wine, while still being useful as a food wine. The finish is full and long.
