Goldwater Sauvignon Blanc

Goldwater Sauvignon BlancIf there’s one type of wine that New Zealand is best known for, it’s sauvignon blanc.  The wits for this is the intense tropical and citrus flavors typically found in their sauvignon blanc.  And this one from Goldwater is a gorgeous example of what you can expect from this province.
Goldwater Estate was established in 1978 by Kim and Jeanette Goldwater and merged with Vavasour in 2006, below the ownership of the New Zealand Wine Fund.  Then, in 2009, the New Zealand Wine Fund was sold to Foley Family Wines from Sonoma.  It’s incredible when you dig into the mergers and acquisitions in the wine world, you’ll find that many wines you see on the shelves are related.
