This is my first time trying a Sauvignon Blanc....and I like this one....I love the citrusy, lemony taste....it is refreshing and crisp
Lightly colored with a floral nose. Medium bodied but plump with a tropical fruit overtone and hints of fig and nectarine. Sweet and full of fruit but the finish is somewhat lacking...
Fresh and crisp. 89 pts.
Poor effort from Cupcake, wine tastes "off" like it went bad
This looks like a popular wine, judging by the number of reviews. A relative of mine had a case of it. Nice, fresh mix of lemon zesty tartness and sweetness. Good.
Crisp, bright, and fruity. I got peach, mango, and of course, lemon on the nose and a nice finish reminiscent of fresh-squeezed lemonade. I think this would be awesome to take with to a picnic or for porch drinking.
