So, I picked this up based on the recommendation that it wasn't like a typical New Zealand Sauv Blanc and honestly, it is like a great Bordeaux Sauv Blanc.  This wine is demure, floral, petrol and very nice.  You get aspects of hibiscus in the smell and the taste is neither too strong nor too weak.  This wine is a genius.  The taste has a little bit of lemongrass, some Meyers lemons, and some regular grass.  This is utter perfection.
