Review: Kono 2016 Sauvignon Blanc

I’m so excited! Tuesday marks the official start to summer.  Okay yes, it has been hot and dry for a couple of weeks now and feels like summer started weeks ago; but nonetheless, it will officially be summer and I love it!  Summer on the farm is a busy time.  Wheat harvest is just around the corner and we’re just waiting to jump in the combine and start cutting.  Besides harvest, nothing says summer to me more than a spectacular Colorado sunset overlooking our wheat fields.

Last week while sitting on the deck looking out over the field just north of the house, I popped open a bottle of 2016 Kono Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.  

The heat of the day lingering, the sun setting and the sky turning orange made each sip taste more like the flavors of summer.  The crispness of this wine is spunky yet light with flavors of citrus and pineapple.  It almost went down a little too easily!  But at only about $10 a bottle, why wouldn’t I have a second glass?!

Being on the lighter side of flavor profile, I’d say if you’re not a fan of white wine this is a good one to try. It might just change your mind! 

Please leave your comments below, I’d love to hear from you. Until next time, cheers!
