Run Rabbit Run!

We had a bottle of Rock Rabbit Winery 2005 Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc while out visiting the in-laws in California. I picked the bottle up at Gouda and Vines in Montrose, CA for $9.95. It had a real cork closure and clocked in at 13.8% alcohol.

The style of this Sauvignon Blanc was completely different from the Matua from New Zealand we had consumed the night before. While still crisp and full of acidity, it didn’t have the same “zing” that the Matua did. I enjoyed both, but I really do love the New Zealand style Sauvignon Blanc.

On the nose I found apricots, lemon, melons and hay. In the mouth I found peaches, limes and pears. We drank this on it’s own one evening, though I would pair it with a nice white fish or crab legs. Overall this wine was crisp and had good structure in the mouth. The value was good as well, though for my tastes, I prefer the Matua at $7.95!
