Picton Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Another New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc recently hit the store shelves in my area.  As we are still in the throes of the inevitable “dog days of summer” in my area, a light white is a pleasant refresher at mid-day (on the weekends, of course) or in the early evening.  Well, obviously you can drink it whenever you wish.  lol  As with any wine for that matter.  Go ahead, blaze your own trail!  And while you’re having it your way, just be sure to do so responsibly so we can keep on celebrating your independent spirit with you.

Winemaker:   Picton Bay
Varietal:  Sauvignon Blanc
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  Marlborough, New Zealand
Price: $7.99 at Trader Joes

Notes:  The bouquet of this Marlborough white was quite loud with abundant citrus, fresh peach, grass and a touch of … perspiration.  That’s the best way I can describe what I was smelling!  It was a light straw in color with very high acidity.  A typically light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc, the Picton Bay was at 13% alcohol.  On the palate I found it fairly straightforward with pleasant citrus and peach flavors.  Simple, easy, inexpensive.  A relaxing glass of white from our friends in New Zealand.
