Wine Wednesday: Bogle Sauvignon Blanc

In my efforts to keep from trying the same wines, I've largely abandoned my Bogle addiction. Before I started this blog, there was ALWAYS a Bogle in the house -- just waiting to be tasted.

Fortunately, this weekend I broke down and grabbed a Bogle Sauvignon Blanc. I'm still learning about Sauvignon Blancs, and I wanted to give this one a try. Bogle has never let me down before, and this time was no exception.

My wife and I shared this 2007 vintage over sushi last night, and this wine perfectly complimented the delicate flavors and light nature of this meal. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and because of this it remains very light with no hint of oak. The fruit is readily apparent with a strong pineapple flare, that doesn't hide the pear and peach overtones.

There is a mild acidity that remains balanced throughout the taste, and gives the wine a crisp and light feel on the tongue. A great summer wine, that isn't too sweet, and is perfect with a lighter meal or sipping on a warm night.

Rating: 4/5. It's good, drink it now. I don't see much reason to let this one age.

Price: $

  1. Sauvignon Blanc's from Australia are best. Look for ones from the Marlboro region. You can get a good one for $12 or so. You might also like to try Vouvray. It's a French white. Harris Teeter has a nice one (Pickard?) for around $13.
