On a sunny April afternoon it is nice to enjoy a crisp white wine and some relaxing backyard golf.
The wine of choice was the 2010 Pyrenees Sauvignon Blanc. A wine that I noticed had been winning its fair share of gold medals at statewide competitions and that I was very curious to try since Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorite white varietals (and you don't find a lot of it in Southern Oregon right now).
The wine has a vibrant citrus (tangerine) nose that opens up to the slightest bit of gooseberry after a few minutes. A light-medium bodied white with impeccably balanced acidity that keeps your palate wanting more (oh, I needed to share this bottle?). This is a very good example of the varietal and I continue to be impressed by Terry Brandborg's (who makes the Pyrenees wines) white wines.
A versatile wine for food pairing as I could see it complimenting sushi, thai or indian cuisine very well. This would also be a wine that would be very pleasant with goat cheese.
