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.
