Today’s Pezzi King Vineyards 2012 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a welcome return to TWS for Pezzi King, who has wowed us in the past with their Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels. We were more than happy to give their Sauvignon Blanc a try, and boy, were we ever thrilled that we did!
Beautifully layered and complex, this wine gives equal placement to sweet fruit, terroir, and subtle herbal undertones. Our tasting panel remarked that this was one of the most elegant and complex Sauv Blancs anyone has tasted in quite some time. This is one excellent food wine, and we enjoyed a glass with some delightful homemade fish tacos.
At only $16.99, this wine is a treat for the wallet as well as the palate. Be sure not to miss out!
Super pale golden hued throughout the glass, nearly to straw yellow.
Bright and aromatic, with white peach, honeydew melon, green apple, orange blossom, lime zest, white tea, sweet lemongrass, and a touch of soft herbal notes.
Well balanced on the palate, with flavors of fresh grapefruit, soft melon, and ripe white peach laid overtop lemongrass, honeycomb, thyme, and a touch of white flower petal.
Fresh, bright, and wonderfully elegant, this wine has a bright acidity and lovely touch of tartness in the finish.
Fish tacos with lime-cilantro crema.
