Happy Wine Wednesday everyone!
Even though fall season, to me, screams “red wine”, I try to review a little something for everyone:) This week, I tried out a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. (Here are some more fall wines if you want alternatives to this white)
I don’t usually gravitate towards a Sauvignon Blanc except in the heat of summer, but this one (and it’s cool packaging) caught my attention. The “paper bag” look on the outside makes me think that you can either drink this wine out of a glass per normal, or just go right out of the bottle. It gives you options;)
Chateau Crisp Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is a 2012 vintage with a gorgeous light golden coloring. It was new marked as new to the store that I purchased it from. Have any of you tried this before?
Bouquet: Very earthy and floral, with a hint of citrus
Tasting Notes: This wine is very light and crisp. It isn’t overly sweet by any means and has a really “easy to drink” flavor. It has a strong pineapple, grapefruit and lime flavor combination, along with herbal notes to combat any sweetness. There are not many layers to it, but it is a decent white for when you just want a nice white for after dinner.
I give this wine an easy 4 out of 5 for drinakability and a nice, crisp flavor.
*Cheers to finding whites and reds that suite our palettes*
