Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 16

Mark Oldman visits soggy Seattle to talk about why he considers Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand a “vinous exclamation point,” “fluorescent,” and “the sensory penetrator”.  He also touches on the benefit of screw caps and how his newfound passion for oysters demonstrates his liberation from “childhood food squeamishness”.
