Sauvignon Blanc, Gascony (white)

Poised to be an immediate crowd-pleaser, this Sauvignon Blanc easily rivals similarly priced wines made from the popular grape variety in New Zealand. The telltale aromas of gooseberries and grass are still present but reserved enough not to get in the way of sheer enjoyment. The palate is full but well balanced out by a healthy degree of acidity. Goes some way in explaining the recent interest in affordable wines from Gascony!
