2003 Pepi Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, White wines, Wine Reviews | Leave a Comment

This is a truly yummy summer wine you can drink by the bottle. More honeysuckle than fruit, this lacks the crispness of some sav’s, but makes up for it with floral oakiness, with a hint of Macintosh apple.

Brandy says, “Like a crisp, tart, green apple turnover. Reminds me of champagne, but that could just be my period talking….”

Upon further reflection, Brandy tastes lime. Rancid lime…

2004 Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under New Zealand wines, Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, White wines, Wine Reviews, region | Leave a Comment

Nice wine, especially for ten bucks. Very intense grapefruit. Nice, tart summery wine. Quaffable! Even when not chilled, its still great, cause its so tart. Delicious!

Brandy says, “The elixer of life, nurturing the dry ivy of my soul, in the hot days of June.”

Drink on, Brandy, drink on……

Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under American wines, Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, Uncategorized, White wines, Wine Reviews, region, style | Leave a Comment

This is the quintessential Sauvignon Blanc. Fruity, crisp, cheap(!), delicious. Highly quaffable. The perfect wine when its FUCKING 100 DEGREES OUTSIDE FOR THE TWENTIETH DAY IN A ROW!!!

(note: For those would-be etymologists out there, the word quintessential is derived from the latin term meaning ‘Fifth Essence’, which is meant to denote the fifth element (apart from Earth, Water, Air, and Fire) that embodies the celestial, heavenly perfection that exists above the moon). Nice, huh?

Firestone Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, White wines, Wine Reviews, style | Leave a Comment

Millions of peaches, peaches for me…this wine has a nice, clean, fruity taste. Heavy peach flavors. I did a tour of wine country last night, learned a lot, and developed a taste for sweet wines, paired with the right foods, of course, so now my mind is open. Millions of peaches, peaches for free…..

2003 Brancott Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under New Zealand wines, Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, White wines, Wine Reviews, region | Leave a Comment

Sauvignon Blancs are my absolute fave right now. This one is no exception. I love how forward the fruit is. Melon, grapefruit rinds, banana, and crisp (not too sweet). You have to be careful what you pair with it, cause it can be easily overpowered, but for a cool sip after work on a hot summer’s day, I’ll take this puppy over a Miller Lite anyday of the week and twice on Sundays!
