2006 Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc: Very good.


may 16, 2009: more celebratory dinners to follow emilie's graduation! this one worked out very well. victoria thought it had an initial slight apricot nose. but later, after about an hour and a half, it had a scent of leeks. the flavor had a minor acidity. greg thought it was really good. he said it had a grapefruit flavor, when it was first opened it had a little bit of an oyster or shellfish scent. alan thought it had the disadvantage of being open a couple days in the refridgerator, but it was thinner, with less intense fruit flavor and scent. but that could have been the result of having been opened. marie-paule thought the first impression was that it had the scent of oysters, but then once it had aerated for 5-10 minutes, it lost that scent.
