Long Flat Destinations Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2006 wine review by (PB)
Aussie varietal with a light straw presence and bouquet of spicy, grassy vanilla cream and guava galore.
Palate--front palate of spice which is quickly overpowered by sharply acidic citrus fruit and tart limes. Finishes quickly and cleanly--make that, cleeeeeeeeeanly.
I like an acidic white and this fills the bill even though it is a bit overdone. It should be a decent food wine which I will use in my risotto I am making to go with grilled tuna. Not everyone will enjoy this acidic of a wine but I do and at $5 on sale, I'm raising a glass!
