Very original #columbiavalley #washingtonstate wine. 85% #semillon and 15% #sauvingnonblanc medium lemon color, dry, rich texture, medium (+) aromas and flavors of lemon tart, ripe golden apples, hay and honey. High alcohol 14.5 but well integrated. Medium finish. Aging well for a 2016. — 2 months ago

Spotlight Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

So distinctively #marlborough #sauvingnonblanc with grassy freshness, tropical fruit and a touch of brininess, but a bit less bright than most examples of the region. This would be superb with oysters and other seafood. — a year ago

Brander

Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Brander vineyard, planted in 1975, is a quiet legend in the Santa Ynez AVA. The vineyard specializes in Bordeaux style wines, with major grape varietals consisting of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Sauvignon Blanc tends not to age well, so drink them within ~3 years of bottling. Warmer climate examples, typical of CA, tend towards grapefruit and tree fruit flavors and typically balance the young juice with high acid. This one was quite crisp and refreshing! ~$17 | #brander #sauvingnonblanc #santaynezvalley

On the eyes: Pale yellow with a hint of green, star bright, clear, med stain, med tears, no floc, gas present.

On the nose: White peach, ripe honeydew, lychee, perfume, and wet chalk. Med alcohol.

On the tongue: Med+ acid, med tannin, med alcohol, med body, effervescent in the mouth. White peaches, ripe honeydew, guava, orange blossom, chalky undertones, perfumed finish. Very nice balance.

Southern Right Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Friday Night Whites. Picked up this little southern beauty from the grocery based solely on location and label - yes, that’s me, basic AF. Anyways, Southern Right is a winery based on the southwest tip of South Africa that specializes in Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc. The 2017 SvB is a dry offering of 10% Hemel-en-Aarde Valley grapes with the rest being a blend of other Walker Bay SvB with ~14k cases produced. Most of the grapes in the area grow in a sandstone/clay soil in a maritime climate, yielding a nice old world flavor profile to the wines, (think acid and mineral). Wine has been grown in South Africa since the 1650s, but only recently with the ending of Apartheid, has the industry been able to thrive. Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Colombard are the most grown varietals. Drank this one, on its own, chilled and unpaired. Remember to drink this now - SvB is best when young. ~$16 | #sauvingnonblanc #southafricanwine #fridaynightwhites

On the eyes: Pale light yellow, clear, light stain, med tears, no gas/floc.

On the nose: Delicate gooseberry and quince, sweet lychee, some floral notes and wet slate. Med alcohol.

On the tongue: Med+ acid, light tannin, med alcohol, juicy and round. Quince, asian pear, persimmon, and lychee rounding out to a bit of leafy notes and high mineralty. Really nice, long, pleasant finish. Not your classic SvB!

Great texture and acidity. The chalkiness and citrus notes remind me of the great chablis or champagne. fresh and intense. Great producer of whites, don't like reds. #cheverny #sauvingnonblanc #chardonnay #loire — 4 years ago
