A Great Little Sauvignon Blanc
Two weeks ago, upon the suggestion of a respected colleague, I tried a Sauvignon Blanc from Matua Valley. Specifically, the name of this great little buy is Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012. As we gradually transition from the harsh, dreary days of winter and enter light, spring coat weather, this white wine becomes a good accompaniment to any light meal. Serve it with fish, chicken in a light sauce, or a fruity ceviche. This wine is pale gold with a hint of green. The nose is so floral and fruity it is a pleasure just to breathe in its aroma deeply before taking the first sip. The taste of this fruity forward wine is crisp, clean, and slightly floral. It is definitely a distinct palate cleanser and will keep you hungering for more food. A great wine for a spring or summer day when served chilled, I recommend this wine to anyone looking for a great tasting white wine under $10.
