Seaglass 2010 - Sauvignon Blanc

To celebrate the 4th of July, it is important to be as patriotic as possible. As such I purchased three bottles of wine. Each of which represents part of the American flag, and all are from the United States. Seaglass’ Sauvignon Blanc serves as my “white” (label & type) wine for this celebration of America. Plus as we all know it is relaxing to enjoy by the beach/pool.

Seaglass’ 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is a wine to be enjoyed outside on the beach, or by the pool. Chill it to cool you off during the hot summer day. This wine is a simple wine that will be enjoyed for the low cost of $11.99 per bottle at your local store. The aroma will provide a slight shock of tropical fruit scents, and the finish will keep you wanting to pour just a little more.

From the very start the aroma will fill your glass like a tidal wave that will consume your entire nose, and swiftly vanish. You will be hit with the strong scents of apple, pineapple, and other tropical fruits including slight hints of passion fruit. While leaving you with hints of asparagus, and fresh cut grass.

Initially you are able to pull out the flavors of a soft pear, apple, and grapefruit. It is almost as if the wine leapfrogs the front of your pallet, and then goes back to add in a zest of a lime with a slight tart feeling. Then, just as quickly as these flavors appeared, they vanish once swallowed. There will be nothing left except the lingering sense of sea salt that will garner the urge to take yet another sip.
