Omaka Springs Omaka Springs 1998 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc ($10.99)
This pale straw-colored wine shows good citric aromas of grapefruit and lemon-lime. Very full and bright in flavor, it's dry and crisp, a real mouthful of wine focused on tart-sweet and juicy grapefruit. Like many of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs of the warm 1998 vintage, it's more citric and not as herbaceous as is typical of the region, but that's no flaw in a wine as full of flavor as this. U.S. importer: T.G.I.C. Imports Inc., Encino, Calif. (Oct. 1, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's abundant fruit and zippy acidity worked very well with an Italian zuppa vognole, a light soup of fresh clams swimming in an herbal and garlicky tomato-and-white-wine broth.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
