Wine Nerd Herd Thursday lunch which we like to call Sauvignon Blanc on steroids - the wines are delicious and the friendship is even better - this is usually a get rowdy event with just the gents but mixed it up a little and was a blast and definitely a little slice of Heaven

Part of the Wine Nerd Herd festive gathering was a SB luncheon which this bottle was a part of. Graciously provided by @Eric LaMasters , thank you. I visited this bottle several times looking for how it would find its sense of place. Came across with a bit to much acid in the beginning then after a few hours I got this grassy somewhat oily texture that seemed to be the end of its development. Would like to try in another year.

Translucent in the glass, very crisp and fresh, getting a white peach thing today from @Eric LaMasters

Almost translucent in the glass with a slight green tint. Big nose of tropical fruits hits you right away and doesn’t dissipate. More of a grassy style with notes of quince and kiwi. Crispy acidity and tartness.

Citrus and honeysuckle flavors and a bit of an unusual (but not in a negative sense) note like celery or jicama. I think it’s a plus effort but isn’t next level like many of the Realm reds.

Fish tacos and white wines on this very hot day. Last day of pressing fruit. Realm was ultra floral and fruity. Obviously you all know how I feel about Kongsgaard 😘

That nose and the bite of bright fruit. So refreshing. I wanted to pour some into the pan and fill the room with Fidelio.

This is a nice Sauvignon Blanc with a really predominant peach character on both the nose and the palate.
