Bench 1775 Winery 2014 Sauvignon Blanc - 90pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $25.30 (including taxes)
Production: 1484 cases
Date Tasted: July 29th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Has the rawness and funk of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the minerality and acidity of those from the Loire Valley. Delivers the 4 Gs of Sauvignon Blanc expertly: gooseberry, grapefruit, grass and gravitas. Add in some cool, river stone and warm, tropical fruit elements and you're left with a winner of a wine that can be enjoyed on its own or as a confident companion to seafood dishes.
No longer an under $20 wine, this Blanc has been hauling-in major awards and deserves consideration among the Okanagan's best. Drink now-2017.
