Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
A mild, crisp white that's not grassy. Refreshing notes of white grapefruit and gooseberry. Nice aperitif or companion to many dishes. Part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. Food matches: lean, white-fleshed fish with mild flavours, oysters, fresh green salads, goats milk cheeses and chicken pates.
