Invivo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 – $
My last post was a bit of a rant. Time to dial it down and write quietly about a nice cheap wine…
I tasted both this wine and a pinot from the same producer as I swung through New World Chaffers on the grocery run last week. The red was ok, but me and cheap pinots have an understanding. Sav it was going to be.
This is a brilliant white straw colour. 12.5%. Light aroma of white pear out of the glass, with a hit of varietal cut-clover. It is slightly softer in the mouth than others down that way; I see typical fresh fruit expression and citrus and melon. Quite good.
I’m having a pretty good run with my wine choices. I’d better find some crap…for ‘journalistic balance’. 4
