the jibe: marlborough sauvignon blanc 2004

So, I’m drinking this wine right now. I never drink New Zealand wine, so I’ve been trying to seek it out. I found this at Safeway, so I’m sure it’s not exotic or anything. Anyway.

I have a cold, so I could be way off here. But it smells like asparagaus. And also, it tastes mostly like asparagus. Supposedly, it has a racy acidity (warning: PDF). But I would call it a “slight” acidity.

It looks like you can get it for as little as $10 (I think I paid a bit more than that, sadly), but I don’t know that it’s worth it, really.
