Repeat to the 4th Power

I truly love this wine. I do. You can read my reviews here of the 2004, 2005, and 2006.  I also selected the 2006 to put in the blogger pack I developed for Domaine 547.  I liked it so much that I devoted 1/4 of the case of wine I get from Mauritson each year to it. Love love love. The 2007 Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc retails for $17 from the winery, but I see it online for $15 and I think I paid about $13.60 for it with my club discount. It had a screw cap closure and clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume.

The nose here is all about grapefruit grapefruit grapefruit.  Really, lots of grapefruit. Otherwise I found lime, stones, white pepper, and a great streak of minerality.  In the mouth, more citrus, more grapefruit, lime, melon, grass, and fig.  The wine shows crisp and clean, with racy tart citrus.  For under $14, this is probably my favorite value domestic Sauvignon Blanc. It’s always on my must buy list every summer.

  1. I love love love Mauritson! Don’t know that I’ve had the Sauv Blanc. I’m headed back their way next month and Ill make sure to try it (if it is still available).

  2. Sonadora,

    We had an interesting debate about minerality recently on our blog. Can you describe what you mean when you say the wine smells like stones? Thanks!

  3. Hi Mary! This is worth hunting down!

    Sure Evan- in this wine, I meant the smell if you’ve ever picked up rocks from a river when they are wet. To me, it’s a clean, natural smell that I think is a bit hard to describe unless you actually go out and pick up wet stones. It reminds me of tubing in the summers and skipping rocks. I’m not sure that helps!
