This light, white sipping white is happy and light in the winter!
Normally, my taste in wine turns darker and redder in the fall and winter but I am on a bit of a Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc kick and it is December.
The hub and I tried Little Straw’s Sauvignon Blanc the other day and it is a bright, happy wine. The label said that there would be distinctive green grassy notes but I couldn’t find them. Instead, I found high acidity, guava, fresh apple and a heap of tropicals as well as a distinct minerality. It was between dry and off-dry.
Here is a treatise on Sauvignon Blanc: from its pronunciation to its typical flavours. Wine Enthusiast is a wonderful resource for wine info.
Nice little sipping wine. Probably nice with cheese but I’m off dairy and meat things these days so I am making an educated guess. I think that a big cheese or a heavy cheese would overpower the wine. Some nice shaved parm would be great but this is nice on its own.
This wine isn’t complex or requiring a lot of study. It is happy and delicious.
The winery itself is family owned and here in West Kelowna. Little Straw is open limited hours during the winter but worth a visit.
