Maddalena Sauvignon Blanc 2006 wine review by (PB)
This is the second wine sent to us from San Antonio Winery for sampling. Like the Cab they sent and previously reviewed, this is a Paso Robles wine as well. The wine is nearly clear with a nice sweet pear bouquet.
In the mouth it is sweet but actually off dry with solid construction. Initially I couldn't tell if this was a Chenin Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc but as it warmed up, (it was too cold) it began to show some grassy S.B. notes and touches of citrus here and there with a grapefruit rind finish.
This wine drank really easily and chilled down on a porch on a hot summer day, this would be a great guzzling white. At $12, it is well made and characteristic of the grape. Raise a glass to be sure!
