The idea of taking a wine to a dinner party can be a little intimidating. Perhaps the hosts are big winos, they have a wine cellar and everything! Clearly, they really know their stuff. Bringing 2 buck chuck is out of the question. But so is spending and arm and a leg. Thankfully there are so many wonderful options out there within whatever your price range is. There is a wine for everybody and every budget.
Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect summer wine, and most folks enjoy a nice crispy refreshing white. A perfect wine for that dinner party is -- drum roll ---- Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc 2013. Word on the street is that the 2013 vintage was one of the best they've had in California. Feel free to use that little fact when presenting your bottle at the dinner party. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks this Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with citrus aromas and tropical fruit. On the palate lovely Meyer lemon zest flows into the perfectly long finish. Well balanced acidity - so no lemon pucker faces. Fun fact: Meyer Lemon is a native of China and thought to be a cross between a lemon and mandarin. Not nearly as acidic as a regular lemon, a slight sweetness. We can thank Martha Stewart for making the Meyer Lemon popular when she started using them in her recipes.
Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect "looks like $$$, but actually costs you $" wine. Not only does it appear classy from the label, the wine itself is sophisticated and enjoyable. The price tag might surprise some - but you don't have to tell anyone what you paid for the wine. Your little secret!
Prices vary based on store. This wine can also be purchased on the Joel Gott site.
