“I was built for the long run, not for the short dash, I guess.” — William Shatner

The wallet-friendly dry white wine is ideal for summer gatherings and hot summer days and sultry nights. It’s a crisp, bright, fresh wine, with the classic New Zealand savignon blanc flavors of citrus, passionfruit and mango with bracing acid. The perfect pairing is Margarita Ahi With Avocado Mango Salsa. The music match is the “Long Run” by The Eagles from the album of the same name. Whether your built for the short dash or the long run, all that really matters is finishing in style.
