Wine of the Week for November 13, 2006

Bellingham Founder's Sauvignon Blanc 2005 - $13.95
Style: W2
South Africa

Done right, and with the proper terroir, sauvignon can be one of the most intriguing wines. This is a terrific rendition, showing rich asparagus, grapefruit and honeysuckle aromas, plus a touch of grass. Rather mouthfilling, with a crisp, forward acidity and grapefruit throughout. Very good body and length. Try with fish with dill, grilled peppers or as a foil for hollandaise sauce. (LCBO 665315)
