I thought this looked interesting sitting there on the shelf in Dunnes. The green tinted glass bottle suggested a delicate sophistication and the Yosemite Blvd origin added romance. It had a gold medal so someone must have cared for it and it was right on my €10 price point!
No so, a flabby, non descript bland table wine with a distinct lack of Citrus and none of the zing, zest and zebedee spring of a Sauvignon Blanc.
It turns out the Medal is a Generic award – the vineyard entered a load of wines into the awards and this medal celebrates that it received a recommendation for paying their entry fee into the awards
