Food Pairings for Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
When you are only allowed to bring 2 bottles back into Canada and one of them turns out corked, it pisses you off.
Served a little cold, but here are my impressions: lots of grass on the nose, there are also notes of limes and other citrus. In the mouth there's more grass with a core of underlying minerality, almost chalky in nature. Peaches come forth on the finish.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc bursts out of the glass with heaps of apricot, lychee fruit, boronia flowers, passion fruit and flint. Layers of white peach, mineral liqueur, and lime oil complement a rich mouthfull of lingering honey which lends itself to a lusciously long expressive finish.
Pale yellow. Pungent grapefruit skin, lemon, musky herbs and fig on the soil-driven nose. Then supple and aromatic in the mouth, with citrus, melon and fig flavors and a firm vein of acidity leavening the wine's fat. Idiosyncratic but interesting sauvignon, finishing with attractive floral perfume.
Vibrant, bursting with fresh mandarin orange juice and tropical whiffs of mango and passion fruit, but also plenty of grass and hay notes. There's a very refreshing acidity, and the flavors sing on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
Readers should not forget the delicious 2008 Sauvignon Blanc (100% Sauvignon). Aged in a combination of primarily stainless steel and about 28% French oak, it offers crisp, flinty grapefruit notes intermixed with fresh citrus and a hint of orange blossom. This fresh, lively mid-weight Sauvignon should be consumed over the next year.
Crisp and refreshing, offering vibrant ruby grapefruit and grassy citrus notes, with ripe nectarine flavors. Light and lively, this is graceful, harmonious and very tasty. Drink now.
Their fresh, delicious lemon blossom, fig, and melon-infused 2007 Sauvignon Blanc has more texture than one normally associates with Sauvignon Blanc, but beautiful crispness and vibrancy. Drink it over the next year.
