Lapostolle Casa Sauvignon Blanc, 2010

Sharp minerality, clean, buttery, steely bouquet, melon, no decipherable citrus.  Very pleasant SB.  What we missed, however, was that lovely herbaceous quality we associate with new world SB, especially from New Zealand; not a trace in this and sort of lacking because of it.  But the Lapostolle is good: It has zip, a sort of startling jolt of freshness, decent finish, very good aperitif wine.  Our big hesitation is simply 13.5% alcohol.

 

Price: Gifted at a dinner party.  But we saw it at Everything Wine for $21.

 

Market Liquidity: Not bad, but given the competition not brilliant.
