Happy Wednesday dear readers!
It has been forever sine I have submitted a post. I don't know why?
I had the afternoon off today and on the way to the dog park I stopped off at my local wine shop, Steve's. I have been browsing their shelves more and more lately. They have an wonderful selection and their staff is quite knowledgeable. I picked up a few bottles, one of which I am really impressed with.
2009 Mohua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
It is very characteristic of a New Zealand Sauv Blanc. Bright, crisp with candied citrus. It tingles my tongue and throat as I drink it. The minerality is subtle, and the citrus is very forward on the palette. A little bit of flint and wet limestone hit your nose as you quaff. I love it! It is not as dry as a French White Bordeaux, which would show more of a mineraly quality. I like White Bordeaux as well, in fact it was the Vacheron Sancerre that made me fall in love with white wines, but I opted for a this one since I hadn't tried it yet. I am glad I did.
I paid about $11 for it and it was WELL WORTH my $$$.
