A fresh and inviting wine available at many Trader Joe’s locations, the Kono Sauvignon Blanc.
Distinctly Marlborough, this delightfully crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is packed with juicy ripe fruit and a touch of natural acidity, leading to a pure and focused dry finish.
We are Maori, the first people of Aotearoa/New Zealand; with a love for the land and respect for the sea we have been kaitiaki or guardians for generations. Our Kono wine has been carefully prepared for you in the spirit of our traditions; a celebration of our harvest, our people, and our culture.
Produced & Bottled by Kono
The 2021 Kono Sauvignon Blanc opens with tons of grassy aromas on the nose plus some lemon and herbal notes and a little tropical fruit. It’s an inviting start.
Taking a sip reveals similar flavors with lots of rich, juicy fruit. It almost tastes a bit sweet but it’s not, it’s just fruity. It’s got plenty of fresh acidity as well.
It ends with a dry, long, lip-smacking, finish. This is a pretty solid Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc for those that like it grassy.
