Mitolo Jester Vermentino Madame d'Or 2011

McLaren Vale, Australia

    My Review: In the glass the wine is very bright but very pale. It has the aura of straw but not much more. The nose coaxes very light wet stone, young citrus, and a refined sea spray.The palate confirms an appealing light minerality, lacy acidity, young citrus,that mere salinity, and a slow walking finish. There is that appealing tartness and lingering minerality that makes you come back for more. Quite refreshing and a great pairing for briny freshly shucked oysters or a chilled seafood plate. I recently had a ceviche with tuna, thin-sliced granny smith apple, and jalapeno that this would be a pleasure to pair with Score: 89/100

     

    whitehaven sauvignon blanc 2012

    Marlborough, New Zealand

    $17.99

      My Review: Fresh aromas abound! Gooseberries, nettle, citrus, and a sprig of just cut jalapeno spray. The juicy palate zings with goose berry, passion fruit, white peach, lime and lemon grass and a lingering jolt of that jalapeno once gain. The texture is quicksilver in a glass jumping rope with an acidity that juicily slithers and commands just one more sip, again and again. Wineometer.net Score: 89/100
