Best White I've had

ספטמבר 30, 2007

This post is being written sitting in evening at a quiet London suburb, staying with family and resting after quite a stressing semester. Some wines were tasted in the last two days, some of which will be mentioned later. For dinner today our hosts pulled a bottle I heard a lot about but haven't tasted yet.

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Pale yellow with green notes on the glass, the nose starts with a layer of fruit, at first dominated by citrus (mostly lemon), followed by flowers, later showing melons and green grapes, with hints of grass in the background and some more tropical fruit which I didn't recognize. Light to medium body, with very mild and pleasant fizzy-ness, which is the scenery of a crazy dance between sweet ripe white fruit and lively acidity, wonderfully combined and follow to medium finish that just begs for another sip.

Most complex and enjoyable white I've had so far, but leaving all the elaborate descriptios aside – just fun and tasty to drink.
