Amy 2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Wine of Origin Western Cape, South Africa; 13% ABV
$5 or $6 at the Richmond, CA, store on 1 April

Amy_2015_SauvBlancI got this after liking the Amy 2014 Merlot, and thinking that the description on the back of that bottle was pretty accurate.  The back-label description on this bottle sounded good, too, so I got one.  This wine is indeed pretty good, and its back-label description is also mostly accurate.

This wine tasted of tropical yellow fruit, yellow and white melon, and gooseberry, balanced by minerality, acid that is slightly lemony, and a little grapeskin bitterness.  Especially a little warmed from fridge temperature, this wine was very tasty and easy to drink.

The next day, the rest left in the bottle was more forward and integrated, but otherwise much the same.

    Had a bottle of this tonight and I found it to be exactly as described by BW (and the back label). As best as I can recollect, it’s very similar to the 2010 Winter Hill at GO a few years ago…although I think I may have liked this one a little more. But it’s also a couple bucks more a bottle. Very enjoyable with Italian dressing marinated grilled skinless, boneless chicken breast.
