I hope everyone had a great weekend? It was beautiful here in the Chicagoland area and it looks like fall is fast approaching. Tonight i have opened the 2019 McBride Sisters Collection Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
On the nose there is peach, lime, grapefruit, nectarine, white flowers and minerality.
On the palate there is lime, nectarine, white peach, grapefruit, herbs, white flowers, lemongrass and a nice minerality.
This wine is medium bodied that has a clean fresh mouthfeel and medium + acidity that leads into a long crisp citrus finish. Lets all have a great week and look forward to a wonderful new weekend ahead. Please be healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 2 days ago
Pale, pale color, with a rich, well-rounded citrus smell. Grapefruit, pear, maybe a hint of vanilla even, and that good old acidity. Taste is delightful. It's has just the right sort of balanced bite to start, with signature SB flavor and a clean, decent finish. A really good middle-of-the-road SB for people who don't love to be punched in the throat by acidity (like I sometimes do), but who also enjoy the things a good, low-cost Sauvignon Blanc has to offer. — 21 days ago
Pale pale lemon with pronounced aromas of citrus (grapefruit, tangerine) thiols. Some green fruit (Green Apple, kiwi) and herbaceous hints (green pepper). Dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body and medium finish. #riesling #newzealand #marlborough — 10 days ago
Lime, lemongrass and sweet grass-cucumber,, baked lemon and phenomenal white pepper nose. Creamy lemon, lime zest, extra virgin on lemon verbena, lemon oil, and an ever burgeoning creaminess. #julestaylor #julestaylorsauvignonblanc #julestaylorOTQ #otq #nz #nzsauvignonblanc #marlboroughsauvignonblanc #nzsauvblanc #sauvblanc #nzsb #singlevineyard — 19 days ago
Color of bubbly egg white. Nose of honey and citrus, a bit lime, peach, a bit roasted nuts, and a bit salty mineral. Nose is refreshing and nice. Taste of peach sweetness, citrus and grapefruit, drizzled with some mineral and zest note. Aftertaste is clean and more grapefruit, and a bit warmth from alcohol. Nice. — 19 days ago
