2009 Indaba Sauvignon Blanc: Crisp, fruity, not much grapefruit.


may 22, 2010: victoria prepared a baked goat cheese salad with mustard vinaigrette, so we wanted to pair it with a white sauvignon blanc (our wine pairing book advised new world creations would work best with goat cheese. but the main reason was greg needed a white wine to make the gravy for his venison dish.) so nancy and i stopped by winetree on our way back from the farmers market and the antique stores. tim, one of the wine guys, asked another of the employees there for a rec for a no-grapefruit sauvignon blanc. (he knows more about reds than whites.) so we were advised to get this south african, which worked out pretty well on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far. nancy in particular is more of a white wine person than a red wine person, so she liked it. but greg said fred didn't like it too much because it had a grapefruit flavor. 13.5 alcohol. less than $10.
