Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc 2007 wine review by Billy
Nose: Creamy Pear, butterscotch and nutmeg with an oaky vanilla spice. Lovely
Palate: tartly acidic that takes "crisp" a touch too far. Muted a bit as the wine warms to become steely. Needs strong food pairing to make it work otherwise unbalanced.
Finish: bitter at the sides with a dry feel to finish. Again, needs a good food pairing to mute the effect
Overall: I paid about $13 for this wine. The nose is delightful and with a meal this Sauvignon Blanc can be a nice complement. If you are wanting a decent Sauvignon Blanc or even just a dry white the Whitehall Lane 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is a solid choice. If you are serving something to stand on its own, make a different selection.
Either way, Raise a Glass!
