The Vino

Clearly, I am a lover of red wine, and I often “throw shade” to the white.  But tonight’s dinner of Chicken Enchilada Nachos (recipe forthcoming) was the optimal occasion for a nice, refreshing, seductive Sauvignon Blanc.  So, as I often do, I get right down to business and pop the cork, as I begin to finesse the meal.  As I swish the glass to release the character of this wine, my nose is serenaded by a blissful fruity fragrance that delivers on the promise of pineapple and peach that the label espouses.  It is a delightful and flirty invite that tempts me right into the first sip.  At first, I am bombarded by the boldness of flavors, and am not quite sure how I feel about it just yet.  But as I continue to taste, the initial barrage of flavor gives way to a smooth and light savoriness that grasps my curiosity and keeps me coming back for more.  Tolloy Sauvignon Blanc is a dry, crisp, lively white wine that gives you teases of fruity flavor without being too sweet or overbearing.  At times, it packs a bit of a “zing,” which gives it attitude and sets it apart from blah, passé contenders.  It reminds me of springtime and is a bottle that I would definitely bring along to a picnic in the park.  Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this wine, and am not the least bit regretful that I “cheated” on my usual bottle of red, for a night.  I’m sorry, good ol’ faithful red, but this is a love affair that won’t soon be forgotten…

Tolloy Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with grilled salmon, herbed crackers with creamy goat cheese, or even Chicken Enchilada Nachos (sure worked out for me!) ok_hand  yum

The Verdict

4.5 / 5
