Sheepy Sauvignon Blanc

The wine for the afternoon was the 2007 Breggo Sauvignon Blanc. I picked this bottle up on our last California trip at the winery. The bottle cost me $25, had a real cork closure, and clocked in at 14% alcohol by volume. Grapes for the wine hail from Ferrington Vineyard in the Anderson Valley.

On the nose I found melon, lime, citrus, and tropical fruit. In the mouth the wine showed citrus, lime, grapefruit, and melon. The wine was light and crisp in the mouth with great acidity. Overall I’d describe it as yummy, very tart and refreshing.

We drank this on it’s own one hot Saturday afternoon after a long day of yard work. It certainly hit the spot for that! I’d serve it with some of the crab and fish dishes I intend to make this summer!
