The chardonnay of sauv blancs: soft, smooth and full-bodied but with the fragrant passion fruit and mango flavors of traditional New Zealand style versions. A refreshing green tartness lingers on the palate long after the sip is gone. Fascinating wine. 3.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=3 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $15
