Tasting Notes – 2009 Charity Case Sauvignon Blanc #sauvblanc

Last month I did a full review of the Charity Case 2008 Rose'. As I dive into the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc I am again impressed by their noble cause, but also by the quality of this wine. A detail I forgot to mention last time, the wine maker is Jayson Woodbridge of Layer Cake.

To The Eye: Dark Yellow, clear, vibrant

On The Nose: A Delightful nose. I was afraid the dark color and barrel fermentation might be

lie new oak on this but I suspect the oak was neutral, or a few years old. I am generally not a fan of SB where the oak flavor can be detected.  Tropical fruit, gooseberry, apricot.

In The Mouth: Equally delightful. This wine is lush, creamy texture and mouthfeel. While I would not call it a French Sancerre style, its definitely not your standard New Zealand grassy, herbal SB. Melon, ripe stone fruit. Nice finish with balanced acidity and fruit that linger.

Recommendation: An excellent value for $14 – not to mention a great cause!

Friday is #SauvBlanc Day

This Friday June 24th is #SauvBlanc day on Twitter, where people will enjoy and Tweet about #sauvblanc – grab a bottle of this to enjoy AND help a good cause. Cheers!
