Review of 2009 Forefront Sauvignon Blanc

Happy Hour: 2009 Forefront Sauvignon Blanc

According to Wines of the World, the definition of Sauvignon Blanc is "a dry, crisp, and intensely aromatic variety with a firm streak of acidity." The 2009 bottling from Forefront by Pine Ridge Vineyards is exactly that. Although it's a textbook Sauvignon Blanc, it's far from boring and one of the best whites I've sipped in a while. It's a refreshing, clean wine with a rich body and tropical fruit aroma. The finish is smooth and lush, while the color is light butter. I paired it with a mixed green salad with blue cheese, but it's the sort of versatile white that can go with everything from grilled shrimp to roast chicken. At $16, it's an affordable bottle that's so wonderful, I would recommend it as a hostess gift.

Have you enjoyed any memorable Sauvignon Blancs recently?

J. Rickards and Foursight Wineries are making amazing wine right now. I'm not really a whites kinda girl, but they both have some pretty great Sauvignon Blanc.
