Wine of the Week: 2009 Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc Walker Bay

The Wine of the Week is not only a very good wine, but also a fantastic value. The Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc has the restrained elegance of a Sancerre with the weight of a full-bodied California Sauvignon Blanc. The nose has the freshness of lime and Granny Smith apple, while the palate has white grapefruit, minerality, and a slight dried herb character. Though it is very mouthwatering, it has some tannins that dry the inside of the mouth and gums. Long finish with intense acidity.

At WineNation for $11.49.
