White Wine?

yes, i do drink white wine. it is coming up on the warmer time of the year and a good patio pounder, a nice gulpable white, can make the late evening on a warm day more bearable. i have a couple of good sauvignon blancs to suggest. the first is whitehaven, from new zealand…the personal favorite of this house. beautiful and fruity, citrus, passion fruit, delicious with food. the 2006 was rated 90 points with wine enthusiast. we have always got a bottle or two on hand in the wine rack.

the other recommendation is what i am tasting right now…taltarni, from australia. another fruity white that has a nose of grapefruit and tastes of grapefruit and pear. very crisp, tasty wine. 87 points with enthusiast and sells for around $14.
