2012 Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc
July 12, 2013 - Norman Bentley
A few nights back the "Chardonnay Queen" prepared her famous Shrimp Scampi for us, and we opened a bottle of the 2012 Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley to further enhance this wonderful meal. It was a good choice! The Waterstone is actually a blend of 82% Sauvignon Blanc and 18% Semillon, which gives it a little of the character of a white Bordeaux.
The nose is refreshing with a suggestion of citrus and herbs. On the palate the wine has the presence of apple, melon, and a little taste of lemon zest. There is also a mild flirtation with grapefruit, without any tart undertones. The finish is crisp and clean, with a hint of mineral in the background, but very little lingering aftertaste. The alcohol content is 13.7%.
This wine would pair well with most seafood dishes, and would be a good accompaniment to most summer salads. Norm's score is 87.
Price: $16 - $19
