Patricia Green Willamette Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This is classic Sauvignon Blanc with high-toned and heavily fruited aromatics along with the tinge of straw and minerals, which is what ripe Sauvignon Blanc should have as its varietal typicity. The strength of the aromatics resounds in the glass with tropical notes at the entry giving way to apples with extremely crisp acidity on the finish. The wine is bright and fresh but retains an enormous amount of texture and richness without being heavy or taking away from its "summertime drinking" sort of nature. This will pair easily with a very wide range of food ranging from summer salads to denser white fish, sushi rolls and nigiri to spicier Asian influenced dishes, risottos with summer vegetables to chicken and pork done on the grill (and while grilling).
