Sauvignon Blanc Rosé

2021 New Zealand Marlborough
90 Points
Best Buy

This ballerina pink rosé is a balanced and refreshing drop that drinks like a straight SB. The varietal vegetal characters are out in full force on the aromatic nose. Summer veg garden notes of green bell pepper and tomato leaf mingle with pink grapefruit, pineapple and passionfruit. The palate is bone dry with zingy acidity and crunchy green veg and juicy fruit flavors. There’s a bit of a sulphuric burn towards the finish, but overall a highly crowd-pleasing drop. Palm Bay International. Best Buy. —C.P.

Sauvignon Blanc Rosé

Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

2021 New Zealand Marlborough
91 Points

The heady aromas we’ve come to expect from NZ Sauvignon Blanc are out in full force here: freshly sliced green bell pepper, passionfruit, guava, lime and grapefruit pith, with a little of that feline pungency. It’s balanced, fresh, slippery and crisp with the ultimate drinkability factor. Palm Bay International. —C.P

90 Points

Deep ruby in the glass, this wine offers aromas of black cherry, cassis and thyme. It is bright at first sip, with flavors of cranberry and pomegranate that are followed by downy tannins and flavors of dark chocolate, dried Mediterranean herbs, jasmine. A note of orange zest commands your attention on the long finish. Kosher. Palm Bay International. —M.D.

2019 Israel Upper Galilee
93 Points

Dark ruby in color, this wine has a bouquet of dark plums, bramble berries and a hint of summer farm stand. It has flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, bittersweet chocolate, espresso bean and olive tapenade wrapped up in supple tannins. There is a pleasant but unexpected note of jalapeño on the finish. Kosher. Palm Bay International. —M.D
