Morandé Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2010

93 points from Wine and Spirits.  Huh.  After tasting how much wine?  Slow day on the abacus?

 

First, sauv blanc is our go-to white and we love it, even (sometimes) cheap crap and even (sometimes) hugely overpriced OK sb (witness the nine pounds sterling for a decent glass at the Covent Garden opera…).  A week does’nt seem to go by without at least a glass, at home or out.  New world, old world, local, international.

 

The Mornadé is OK, I guess.  Comparable to dozens of other SB’s on the market.  There is nothing terribly unique or memorable; in fact, we found it a touch too acid.  It proved a good foil for Greek fish (baked tilapia with fresh dill, tomato, shallots, feta and lemon) but not a satisfying pre-dinner sipper.

 

Price: $19.99 from Everything Wine ($18.99 with the case discount)

 

Market Liquidity: Easy come, easy go.
