A Flight of Sauvignon Blanc
$17.50 and $30.99
pair with goat cheese
Sauvignon Blanc is known for producing dry, acidic and crisp wines with a very distinct vegetal or herbaceous quality. The most notable at present come from the Loire Valley and New Zealand but many other new world countries are also producing some strong contenders. The key identifying markers are racy acidity, strong citrus flavour combined with that unmistakable grassy quality.
In terms of food pairings shellfish comes to mind and in particular oysters but it is a great salad wine and complements green vegetables very nicely.
