My Favorite Tried and True Sauvignon Blanc
09/23/2011
by Biron14141269
You can always count on this crisp tasting wine. Great by the pool for some summer fun!
Super sipper!

I am used to Sauvignon blanc being light, crisp, and not too flavorful. I tried this one, 2010 vintage, and was startled. Beautiful nose, hints of tropical fruit, fuller bodied than I anticipated. Lovely mouthfeel, good fruit, and just enough acidity on the back end. Good with food, but it seems to me better just to sip and enjoy. The word that comes to mind is delicious.
Perfect with Lobster

Opened this for my birthday dinner tonight and it was a perfect match with the grilled lobster tail my wonderful wife made. Crisp, definitely a hint of butter, and perhaps pear. Will grab a case of this next time!.

Must try! Crisp, fruity, and although it says it was not fermented in oak. . .there is a buttery or oaky undertone. Just wonderful!!
Great Price Adds Appeal

More citrus than I prefer. But at this price, this is a credible wine.
Yawn

Unoffensive and drinkable. There's worse to be had for the price (and better too).
undrinkable

by williams13669657
opened this 2008 vintage bottle on 30 Oct 09 to find it undrinkable, perhaps, bad bottle, but no fruit flavor and with heavy unpleasent odor. The tasting notes mentioned undertone of cut grass. this bottle may be overtone of cut grass. Will not purchase again at any price.
Bad Bottle?

About South Africa

South Africa has produced wines in the area of Cape Town since the 17th century, but the country's significant place in the U.S. market is far more recent. During the era of apartheid, trade sanctions imposed on imports from South Africa kept these wines out of the U.S. and many other markets, with the effect that local South African winemakers had little incentive to produce wines that could compete in a global setting...

Sauvignon Blanc

For all of its name recognition and reputation for high-quality plantings and bottlings, Sauvignon Blanc has never been represented in lists or discussions of the spectacular wines of the world. But just because wines made from Sauvignon Blanc are rarely crafted for extended cellaring and don't command staggering sums in international auctions doesn't mean that...
