People’s Sauvignon Blanc, 2010

A tart green grassy mouthful but slightly brash.  A tad reminiscent of Taveners Sour Lemon Drops.  Lingers on the tongue with what seemed a hard undertone (compared to, say, the softness of a gewurtz).


With dinner (fresh halibut baked in a parchment packet with zucchini, cherry tomatoes, shallots and wine alongside sautéed criminis and fingerling potatoes) it was much more palatable, had a refinement completely missing as an aperitif, less zing, and in a good way.


Overall, superb value if just an inch too forward.


Price: $15.99 at BC Liquor
