Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley 2012
"The 2012 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh. Guava and hints of key lime pie jump out of the glass. The entry is vibran t, yet maintains elegance. On the palette, there is a harmonious dance of peach, pass ion fruit and crushed rock. As you would expect from a wine that sees no oak and no ma lo-lactic fermentation, it finishes clean and smooth with perfectly balanced acidity. E njoy this wine with light appetizers, salads, seafood dishes or on its own on a warm summ er evening. Around the winery, we fondly refer to our Sauvignon Blanc as our porch wi ne." -Winery
Whoa. If you're on cholesterol medication, you're initial reaction on taking a whiff of this one is to run--all grapefruit all the time. For that matter, make it grapefruit rind. OK, I know it's safe. It's not really grapefruit juice. The palate will not convince you otherwise though. Still all grapefruit. Fortunately, a somewhat sweet, enjoyable grapefruit. There is some acid as the wine travels over the palate. This is not like any wine I think I've ever had. It is refreshing, and it is enjoyable, but it just doesn't taste like wine. A lot of people won't like this. It really is not grapefruit juice. Do, those of us who are on Simvastatin can drink it.
Fantastic Dry Creek Sauv Blanc. A lot of grapefruit on the nose but more lemon than grapefruit on the tongue. Bright, crisp and extremely well balanced. One of the better Sauv Blancs we've had.
