Wairau River 2000 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Melon, citrus and green-bean aromas get a lift from some smoky oak. The thick, meaty palate is also a tad oaky, but it comes through with plenty of ripe melon, citrus and a hint of butterscotch—presumably from the oak. The finish is full and evolves in layers, always a good sign of a wine's overall quality.
