Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc 2007

I don't review too many sauvignon blancs, but this wine isn't bad.  It had a typical aroma of passionfruit, with some initial spritz on the palate that then settled down to some nice length with a certain roundness, though the acidity was still there.  Quite pleasant.  84 to 85 points.
