Mission Briefing

Codename:

All that is Golden

Today’s 2011 Mario Bazán Cellars Sauvignon Blanc is a delightful follow-on to their previous vintage SB. Once again the wine exhibits plenty of character, but with a much more soft and luxurious feel, this time around. In fact, this is one of the most tender Sauvignon Blancs we have tasted. And, for all its softness, this wine does not lose its crisp and refreshing edge.

Pair this wonderful, budget-friendly wine with hard cheeses, seafood, pasta Alfredo or with your upcoming Holiday meals. This refreshing white wine will please all of your party guests, so be sure to have plenty on hand.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Lovely straw yellow, with perfectly even color, from edge to heart. After swirling, tall, skinny, viscous legs fall slowly down the glass.

Smell:

Fresh lemon, lemon zest and soft lime. Freshly dried hay, subtle white spice, pineapple and zesty sweetwood follow as the wine warms.

Taste:

Bright and very flavorful, with loads of creamy lemon curd, white peach, pineapple and yellow grapefruit. Lemongrass, tart young pear, pluot and sweetwood follow.

Finish:

Super long, with plenty of long-sustaining fruit that slowly yields from sweet to tart. After a few long moments, the wine spreads a white mineral dryness across the whole palate.
