I’m on a roll with Sauv blancs. I quite like them. I find them very food friendly. They go quite well with creamy sauces and can cut through grease/fatty foods. With the rating this one got I ran out and got it. You should too … The wine is typical pale in color. With lots of grass, and nectarines on the nose. In the mouth the wine is smack on varietal. It’s lemony, grassy and quite nice. On the lighter side of medium on the finish. If I actually had to choose I would say the Stella Bella recently reviewed is better in that it is a longer wine. But why would one choose when you can have both! 89-90.
From the LCBO web site:
SEIFRIED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2008 Nelson South Island Seifried Estates is the winery that initially brought the Nelson region to the attention of the wine world. Their Savvies continue to impress. TASTING NOTE: Pale straw color. Grassy aromas of overripe lemon apple and grapefruit custard follow through on a crisp entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with nectarine sauteed pepper onion skin and yellow pepper notes on the refreshing lively finish. Very nice. Score – 91. (Tasting panel www.tastings.com Jan. 22 2009) 957670 $17.95 Featured 8/29/2009
