Drinking All the White Wines

I’ve been on a serious white wine kick lately. So much so that I’m down to under 20 bottles of white wine in the basement and almost all of that is Chardonnay (which is odd since my real white wine loves lie with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, etc.). Though perhaps that’s why the Chardonnay accumulates…it’s the most common white wine that arrives in my wine club shipments so whenever something different comes I drink it right up! But anyway, of the last 6 bottles we’ve drank here, 3 have been white, 2 roses, and 1 red wine.

I chose the 2006 Longboard Sauvignon Blanc to sip on the other night while Matt worked away into the wee hours of the evening.  It had a real cork closure, clocked in at 13.2% alcohol by volume, and ran me about $12 at the winery last fall.

On the nose I found grapefruit, lemons, gooseberries, and other citrus.  The nose smelled fresh and promised good acidity in the mouth.  In the mouth I got flavors of grapefruit, lemon, tropical notes, and some softer tropical fruit on the back palate.  Overall, I found the wine to be light, tart, and quite refreshing.  Definitely a good buy at the price I got.
