Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Was in a New Zealand state of mind recently when I ran across this selection at a local store.  You see, I write some songs from time to time.  Nothing you’ll hear on the top 40 stations any time soon.  I call them my little ditties. LOL  Even so, I have recorded some of them.

Last month I was doing a yearly overview of published playlists and found that one of my songs had been getting spins fairly frequently on a radio station in New Zealand all year (2015).  Surprised and elated, that put me in the mood to celebrate.  So what better way than with a nice Kiwi wine!Oenophilogical_CliffordBaySauvignonBlanc2014

Winemaker:   Clifford Bay
Varietal:  Sauvignon Blanc
Vintage:  2014
Appellation:  Marlborough, New Zealand
Price: 12.99

Notes:  Another pungent New Zealand SB, the Clifford Bay smelled pretty much like a big glass of ripe pink grapefruit juice.  Pale yellow in color with a distinct greenish tinge, it was light-bodied with brisk acidity.  Alcohol was at 13%.  What did it taste like?  To me it tasted like the bouquet suggested it would.  Is this a Sauvignon Blanc to serve with Sunday brunch?  Perhaps so!  Or lounging somewhere under a hot tropical sun?  If you find yourself in that situation … Yes!  I found it a straight-forward and enjoyably refreshing glass of wine.
