La Petite Perriere Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Floral, tropical, and mineral notes on the nose
Light bodied with good acidity on the palate
Lemon and apple finish
An excellent value white wine, I'll be getting more of this for the Summer. It's crisp and clean but also has just enough depth to keep it interesting.
I'll submit that Sauvignon Blanc is the best value grape in the world, and great values abound from places like France, Italy, California, Chile, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Don't miss out on the French versions, which in the case of the basic, inexpensive bottles have often begun putting the varietal on the label after many years of debating the merits of doing so.
Expect to pay $10 or less for this wine, and raise a glass!
