Chateau Ste Michelle Horse Heaven Sauvignon Blanc, 2010

Uber-refreshing.  Very crisp and acidic.  Mostly, for us, grapefruit and citrus.  Sharp and clean out of the fridge and as it warmed to room temperature there was more nuance to it but it also lost that cool freshness and appeal it had “too cold.”  None of the New Zealand green or floral Sancerre-ishness you might expect but still very pleasant.

 

With a vegetarian main (carrot, dill, feta risotto) it was a perfect pair.  As a sipper, so-so.

 

Price: Gifted, not sure.  Most CSM wines are $24 and over in BC though.

 

Market Liquidity: Base hit but no homerun.
