Simonsig "Sunbird" Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy nose that is slightly floral yet presents a base of soft chili, with melon top notes and a hint of smoke. Round on entry with a nice balance between sweetness and bright acidity supporting bright lime and sour apple fruit. The finish is modest and shows some nice tangerine and grapefruit notes. A bit fruity but fresh and showing good typicity in a popular style. 86pts

Another great summer sipper. Lots of citrus and lemongrass. In a blind tasting I would guess New Zealand so if you like that style this is a great alternative. I would assume it's widely available.

At first, I thought this was a Pinot Grigio, the herbaceous scents of green grass and dandelion. On sipping, I knew I had a Sauv Blanc by its crisp acidity, medium-light mouth-feel and flavors of tangy lime. The finish turned slightly sour but not entirely unpleasant.

I really like how smooth and 'creamy' its texture was. Such light spice and grassy notes. It was very nice when chilled.
