Stag's Hollow Winery 2010 Sauvignon Blanc - 87pts

Stag's Hollow Winery 2010 Sauvignon Blanc (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $18.99
Alcohol: 12.9%
Date Tasted: July 25th, 2011

Tasting Notes: Serve chilled for a refreshing summer heat shielding sipper or let it breath and warm up to reveal a gorgeous, delicate nose of citrus fruits and aromatic flowers. Acid may be a bit tart for some with a slightly dryer finish than its 2009 predecessor thanks to the acid-loving 2010 growing season, yet the balance works to highlight Sauvignon Blanc's crispness when left un-oaked and with minimal lees contact. Subtle tropical fruit notes compliment the austere style resulting in a delicious and well priced Sauvignon Blanc to be enjoyed in the company of your favourite hot tub (or hard cheese like Gruyère). Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2011-2012.
