New Zealand wines tend to be pricy, but here’s a moderately priced pair. Ara Sauvignon weighs in under $15, and also under 13% alcohol. A good start. It’s also easydrinking, mild mannered ““ so you could serve it to friends who don’t like Savvy. A good party wine that should impress, and ensure you don’t look cheap.~
The Pinot also scores well on price. A shade simple, but with some Pinot charm and refreshment. Lightly chill.
