La Petite Perrière Sauvignon Blanc

October 23, 2013

20131023-080930.jpg La Petite Perrière Sauvignon Blanc is the ‘Wine Wednesday’ choice, as it pairs so nicely with a variety of foods. It is also lovely just having it by the glass, without food. Something I always look for in choosing a wine for home. It also comes in at under $15, which is always nice. “The smell explodes with the aromas of ripe yellow (peach and apricot) and exotic fruits. Clean and refreshing with a good length the taste is a whirlwind of freshness, complexity, fineness and ends with notes of ripe melon.” This was a description I read from a wine distributor. Anything thing that has the words ‘whirlwind’ and ‘fineness’ rates high in my book. We had it last evening with that simple chicken dish I wrote about recently (the one with lemon, garlic, white wine) and I used this wine to cook the chicken in, and we also had a glass with the meal. It was perfect all around.
