2013 Susan sauv blanc

My regular readers know I am a fan of Sauv blancs as well as a fan of Kacaba. 2012 was the first vintage of this wine. I was excited to see Kacaba doing it and bought a case. Sadly 2013 will be the last year for it, they were wiped out by our nasty winter. On our recent trip down to Niagara we tasted this one. This one is pale in color with a mild grassy nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice mild grassy notes along with some citrus, lemon. On the medium length finish the wine displays citrus notes along with some mild sweetness. It’s a lovely smooth albeit lighter sauv blanc. I would give it an 88 or so. Very food friendly.

From the winery’s web site:
SUSAN SAUVIGNON BLANC 2013
Details: After hand harvesting our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were pressed immediately to minimize skin contact and juice deterioration. This gentle approach permitted the juice to clarify naturally and slowly. After settling, the juice was fermented using selected yeast in stainless steel at cool temperatures retaining fruit flavour and freshness.
Per bottle: $17.95
