Wine Review: Mohua Sauvignon Blanc 2016
How do you know if you will like a particular wine? Sometimes, you just have to try it and see. It can help if you read a review, like this one, to get an idea of what the wine is like. I tried this wine one afternoon, and now I’m sharing my thoughts with you.
This is a good example of a New Zealand wine made with the Sauvignon Blanc grape. This type of wine is known for having tropical fruit flavors and “green” or grassy flavors. This particular wine hails from Marlborough, New Zealand.
Did you know? Wine has an aspect called “acidity.” Acidity makes your mouth pucker like lemonade. Mohua Sauvignon Blanc 2016 has a good amount of acidity, which I like, but some don’t. I find that the acidity is balanced by a slightly mineral taste, reminiscent of Dasani bottled water, or mountain water.
You’ll probably like this wine if…
- You like tart (also described as acidic) white wines.
- You like tropical fruit flavors.
- You like a refreshing touch of mineral flavor.
You might not like this wine if…
- You don’t like “green” or grassy flavors.
- You don’t like white wine.
- You prefer wines that are noticeably sweet.
Pair Mohua Sauvignon Blanc 2016 with spicy food and Asian food. It’s an ideal spring and summer wine that’s refreshing without being too lightweight.
