Wine Review: White Oak 2009 Sauvignon Blanc


This wine is a light straw color. The nose has aromas of bright fruit, primarily citrus (grapefruit), pears, apples, and lemon zest. The palate mirrors the nose, along with hints of wet stone, and a bit of minerality. This wine has good acidity and a nice finish, which makes it a good wine to sip alone or to pair with food.

 I paired this wine with fresh goat cheese on crackers. I also think this wine would pair well with a sheep's milk cheese called Ossau Itray (oh-soh-ee-RAH-tee) http://www.artisanalcheese.com/prodinfo.asp?number=10074. In addition, I would pair this wine with seafood, appetizers with artichokes and spinach as the main ingredients and light cheeses. Note: This wine was a sample provided by White Oak Vineyards & Winery http://www.whiteoakwinery.com SRP $16.00
