Review of 2009 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc

Happy Hour: 2009 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is without a doubt my preferred wine grape. It's normally a wine that's crisp and refreshing with flavors ranging from fruity and floral to earthy and grassy. One recent bottle that's worth mentioning is the 2009 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc.

It's from New Zealand and has a screw-cap top, but it's delightful, complex, and easy to drink. It's the type of wine that after one sip, you can't exactly note the flavors, so you take another sip and another, until the whole glass has somehow quickly disappeared. It's a super dry Sav Blanc with a full body, tropical nose, and clean young taste.

Although I drank it solo, it would pair well with seafood dishes and tangy cheeses. I tried this wine at a tasting and definitely have plans to seek it out and enjoy it at home. What's your favorite Sauvignon Blanc?
