2004 House of Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

I know this has been a theme recently, but in the heat of summer (which arrives early here in Memphis), it's really nice to turn to light whites and sparklers that can be chilled and enjoyed early in the meal so that you can cool off. Thus I grabbed a bottle of the 2004 House of Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, a great little wine from New Zealand. All you need to know about this is grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit. It tastes and smells like unsweetened grapefruit juice, though not as bitter or acidic. I had it with some leftover pizza, and it was a happy combination. $11.
