Wine of the Week for September 28, 2009

Fish Hoek Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - $9.95
Style: W2
South Africa

The name here refers to a resort area near Cape Town in South Africa. The nose is understated with lime, fig, and just a hint of chemical. Rich and flavourful on the palate, with tangy with lemon, crisp apple and a suggestion of butter on the close. Very good body and length. Not typical of sauvignon, but good overall and excellent value. Would work well with Thai dishes, mild cheeses or white sauces. (LCBO 129726)
