SB³ Enigma 2012 Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough, New Zealand; 13.5% ABV
$3 at the Richmond, CA, store on 8 June

SB3Enigma_2012_SauvBlancI found this wine not very complex but solid and flavorful.  I tasted tart citrus of lemon / yellow grapefruit and some green lime.  It’s more bitter than most, especially in the finish, but not badly so.

The saved single-glass screw-cap bottle was much the same, full-flavored and solid, not all that tasty, and a little bitter.

    I liked this wine better than you, BW. When I had it against a Kaikoura, it was nuanced and more subtle and had to dig my nose into the glass for the complexity. It’s just difficult to pass up on this wine for the price.
