The only better Sauvingon Blanc is Hanna's 2007 and 2008. Pear flovor predominates on the nose and on the after taste. 2007 is sold out, so if you find it, buy it!
Unlike more traditional Sauv. Blancs, which are low on the flavor intensity scale, the Hanna sauv. blancs trumpet themselves. Aromas of citrus, particularly lemon, and grapefruit, announce themselves clearly in the nose. On the forepalate, you get a bubbling sensation (a sign of secondary fermentation), and a reinforcement of the nose with such intensity that it was akin to hearing the crash of cymbals nearby. Mid-palate, secondary flavors of grass and lime appear. The finish is smooth (again, a sign of the secondary fermentation) and quick. This is an excellent summer party and picnic wine when combined with light foods for those seasons.
Gotta little zing. what? Under $20? Gotta be a mistake... Gotta Get it!
