Did you all notice that it’s gone and gotten hot outside? We certainly did! Sure, you could have a beer to beat the heat. But we know that what you really want is a great glass of refreshing White Wine! So, this week we have a zesty little number from New Zealand, the 2017 Hay Maker Sauvignon Blanc. A quick sniff reveals lifted scents of fresh cut grass, pink grapefruit zest, and a touch of dried apricot. The palate fulfills the promise of the nose with abundant flavors of ripe Meyer lemons, nectarine pulp, and mango that culminates with a fresh, crisp, dry finish that is sure to quench your thirst. We’ll be the first to admit that the 2017 Hay Maker Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc isn’t the most fancy wine in the shop but it is mighty darn yummy to sip on a sunny afternoon and, if you swing by this weekend, it’s less than eight bucks! Drink this one alone as a cocktail when you want something light and fun or pair it up with an arugula salad topped with toasted walnuts, sliced strawberries, fresh goat cheese, and a nice Meyer lemon vinaigrette.
Food Pairing:Like I said before, this Sauvignon Blanc is perfectly suited to cocktails in your favorite shady spot. But if you feel like taking it up a notch then you ought to serve it alongside a nice, light salad. I’ve been doing a great appetizer salad lately with some good spicy arugula, fresh goat cheese, sliced strawberries, and a few toasted walnuts. More often than not I dress it with my standard homemade balsamic vinaigrette but in order to really kick the pairing off I suggest doing a simple Meyer lemon vinaigrette with Meyer lemon juice, good olive oil, a drip of dijon mustard, a bit of dried basil, and salt and pepper. I think that ought to provide an excellent foil for this zippy White!
