Frenzy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, 2008

After the Domaine Daulny Sancerre, this is my second favorite Sauvignon Blanc at the moment.

The color is a medium gold with green highlights. I still feel a frenzy of action in my nostrils and on my tongue. Some jalapeno pepper is now emerging along with mint, passion fruit and lime. There is more ripeness on the palate than the aromas suggest; flavors dance on the tongue, shifting and changing like the views on a kaleidoscope.

I like what the Italian winemakers have done with this Sauvignon Blanc. And I like the price: $9.99 at D&W Markets in Michigan. But, as a serious dinner wine, it doesn't even come close to matching the Domaine Daulny Sancerre.
