The Windmill Wine-Down: 2016 Tarzali Sauvignon Blanc09:00:00
Hello and welcome to another 'Wine of the Month' post. These posts have been far and few between I know, I know; however I thought with 2017 harvest in full swing here it was time to get cracking and share some info on our 2016 wines here on the inter webs before they disappear out of the cellar forever.
Off the starter block today is the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc.
A BIOGRAPHY ON THE BLANC:
Sauvignon Blanc is a green skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region in France.
We planted this variety in the vineyard in 2008 and enjoyed the first vintage in 2010.
Each and every year the flavours seem to get better and better and vintage 2016 is certainly no exception.
WHATS TO LIKE:
- Its a perfect starter for when a visitor drop around, crisp and cold straight out of the fridge.
- Lovely light colouring that reflects its summery and herbaceous notes.
- Light acidity that gives it a nice refreshing, crisp feel on the palate.
- Speaks of summer with its passionfruit and lychee hues.
- Its always a great one to share with friends.
- A beautiful accompaniment served with a light meal or a nice starter platter full of soft cheeses and tasty biscuits.
-Everything!!! he he.
The weekends are always good fun out at the farm and we find its always better to enjoy our wine in the good company of others and the family is no exception.
We enjoy our Sauvignon Blanc nice and cool. This is often the go-to, five or six o'clock sips on the weekend where everyone has finally stopped 'work' for the day and we can all catch up on the happenings and particulars. Its lovely sitting under the cool and shady grape vine canopy just out the back door, especially when the weather is hot. Now its even nicer with the cool and colour of Autumn on show.
The kids over the summer and on these lovely balmy autumn evenings happily play in the sandpit in eye and earshot and one of us adults usually gets roped in to pushing them on the swing. Its a hard life!!
If there is a plate of cheese and biscuits going around, then we really do think we are going alright.
How would you enjoy a Tarzali Sauvignon Blanc?
