2007 Mission Hill Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

I haven’t written about white wines on here at all… because I just don’t have them all that often.  But tonight called for a class of white.  My wife and I were making a creamy chicken pasta for dinner, and the reds I have just didn’t seem to make any sense.

For this particular wine, I’m not exactly sure how it got into my wine cabinet.  Possibly someone brought to one of our dinner parties to which many others had already brought and opened wine.

Good reason to host dinner parties: people feel obligated to leave the wine they brought, even if they don’t get to drink it.

I just did a quick lookup on the wine, and noticed that the 2008 has actually won quite a few awards, including a gold medal at the 2010 Pacific Rim International Wine Competition (click here for details).

But in any case, this wine was a great choice for dinner.  Now, my wife is seven months pregnant, so this one was all me.  It had aromas and tastes of sour apples and citrus.  A nice, crisp white.  A mouth-watering finish.  Overall, I really enjoyed it.  It reminded me of why I should drink more white wines.  And a great way to end a long weekend.
