Backyard Vineyards 2012 Sauvignon Blanc - 85pts

Backyard Vineyards 2012 Sauvignon Blanc (Okanagan Valley) - BC

: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $16.99
Alcohol: 13.6%
Date Tasted: September 10th, 2013

Tasting Notes: Grapefruit, grass and light tropical fruit greet you on the nose of this easy-going, food-friendly dinner companion for fish dishes. Not an overtly intense or tangy Sauvignon Blanc, but offers some good typicity for the variety. Finishes pleasantly dry with some residual sugar balanced nicely by the citrus acidity, though, the palate suffers a bit from out-of-skew ratio of alcohol to weight - just a tad "hot". Drink 2013-2014.
