Guenoc Sauvignon Blanc 2005

What a lovely California Sauv Blanc this is, full of pineapple and melon with a creamy mouthfeel that suggests oak, even though the wine was cold fermented in stainless steel. It's flavorful, refreshing and bone dry, perfect for sipping on the deck or as an accompaniment to chicken (we had it with ’Choked Chicken with Capers) or grilled fish. At this moment, I'm planning on serving it next week with grilled shrimp tossed with The Devil's Angel Hair. At $10 a bottle, this is a good wine to stock up on for summer.
