The Citric Taste of Sterling Vitner’s Sauvignon Blanc Collection

If citric, fruity, and honeydew melon flavors with a touch of lemon glass is what you are looking for you might want to check out Sterling Vintner’s Collection of Sauvignon Blanc. At the total discount price of $9.00 a bottle you would be surprised by the vividness of the taste.  Certainly not the overwhelming impressive bottles you might find in more expensive brands but this is not their market. 

I wasn’t in the market for white wine but the scruffy kickboxing coach offered me a free bottle- who is to argue? At a total cost of $0 to me I thought it would be worth a try. Pleasantly, I was surprised that it was appealing and full of flavor. Certainly I can envision the use of such a wine for hosting larger events and social gatherings. It may also work well for a general table wine.

Sauvignon Blanc originally started in the 17th century in the Gironde area of southwest of France. Austria, New Zealand and California have adopted the wines for commercial development.  Vines that produce the wine are vigorous and upright in its growth with small bunches of berries with hard skins.
Such wines are often offered as a desert wine.  Generally their temperature is around 45 degrees F which amounts to around 20 minutes in an ice bucket.  White wines should be served with white meat which includes seafood, chicken and pork. Dishes with leafy greens also work as well with this type of wine. 

The Sterling Vineyards are located in Napa Valley. They have tours for around $25 per person and include a leisure tour, five wine tasting choices, and a Sterling glass. Visitors can take the tram up to the winery while having a panoramic view of the area. It is a one of the kind tour for the area. The winery is designed after the Greek island of Mykonos. 

Price $9.00 per bottle (Website offers different qualities and prices)
