Every few months, we get together with a few wine-loving friends to taste and learn about wine. Over the years, we’ve discovered and tasted wines from many corners of the world, sipping dozens and dozens of varietals and enjoying a multitude of wine styles.
We thought it would be interesting to create a Wine Tasting Group Series of posts on Possible Pours blog to occasionally report on the honest recommendations of this group, whose opinions we highly respect.
The 2017 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc (13% alc.) is pale yellow in the glass. There are strong aromas of kiwi and melon on the nose. There are tastes of lemon and grapefruit citrus, grass and minerals. The finish is long, acidic and dry. This is a refreshing wine perfect for warm weather sipping.
Pouring the wine, this Vermentino has a light straw-yellow color in the glass with aromas of lemon, chamomile and grass. Tasting the wine, there are notes of citrus, green apple and honey. The acidity is well balanced and not overpowering with a buttery, mineral finish at the end. The folks at Uvaggio believe wine should be fun to drink.
