I love Brander, the winery that turned me on to Sauvignon Blanc. To celebrate my love being home I decided to open a bottle of their special 30th anniversary cuvee. Light, bright yellow in the glass the nose is an excellent expression of Sauvignon Blanc with a lovely nose loaded with grassy notes, crisp apple, and a touch of lemon peel. This medium bodied wine has good acid structure and delivers lovely citrus with a touch of minerality that carries into a medium/(+) length finish. Peaking now this tasty wine will carry itself well through 2012.
