There are times when you get so used to a varietal
tasting a certain way, that it takes you by surprise when
you taste a different take/style on it. That happened to me
both with some Sauvignon Blanc from both Chateau Ste
Michelle in Washington state, as well as one from France.
This is one of those times.
In the Italian fashion, this wine, of course with the
vineyard started by an Italian man, is very clean and
doesn't have everything else affecting the overall taste of
the wine. Weirdly enough, I was expecting this wine to have
another varietal in it, because it tasted like something
else is in it.
With a very straw yellow colour, this wine has a very
clean taste to it, with very muted aspects of both pineapple
and lemon with a very light acidity. The finish is not long
and this is probably best with something like herbed
chicken, especially dill or rosemary. On the end, you
actually get a little bit of grassyness as well.
But I will tell you something, the more you drink of
this, the more it gets better and better.
