I tend to drink more whites and rose’ wines in the summer. But of course reds are still my favorite. When we are on the boat hanging out, I prefer the lighter fruity wines. I tend to keep them cooler because they warm up faster in my glass on the boat. I have to watch myself because I can suck down the cooled wine really fast.
Pale color depth and an amber hue.
The Sauvignon Blanc was aromatic with young-fruity development. I could smell citrus, lemon, pear, grapefruit, pineapple.
The wine was dry, medium-bodied, and the acidity was lively. Tasting the wine I had soft, silky mid-palate flavors with a soft finish.
How much: $17.00
The fruit is family-grown harvested from the Virginia block, named in honor of the 4th Nichelini child born in 1895. The fruit is hand-harvested, slowly fermented and has not seen oak.
I rate the 2012 Nichelini Family Winery Sauvignon Blanc three glasses.
Life is too short to drink crappy wine!
