Massimo is a brand that's turning out real quality wines from some of the world's best regions at a great prices. This 2013 Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough is the latest example. Sourced from vineyards in the the Marlborough region, the grapes are picked at night to retain freshness and cool temperature fermented in stainless steel to bring out the ripe fruit. It's brimming with bright citrus, lime zest, grapefruit and mineral flavors. This lively white is a perfect refresher that's rich enough to match with chicken, seafood, oysters and cheeses. It scored 92 points in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition. They said "Forward herbal, lime zest, grapefruit flavors sparked with a bit of jalapeno. Crisp and refreshing." A super value!
To be expected, the nose offers tropical fruit aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and some lime zest. What's cool about this wine is the hint of effervescence it leaves on the tip of your tongue and the crisp acidity that carries through from start to finish. Perfect for a BBQ sipper or paired up with some chilled seafood.
