BEST IMPORT
Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2006

A fine Marlborough sauvignon of the citrusy, not-so-green type. Fresh herb and green-salad aromas; soft, smooth and easygoing in the mouth with traces of lemon and grapefruit. A less-pungently varietal style and very more-ish. Drink young. 89/100 Food: sushi and sashimi
