I like their Reds and this Sauvignon was a first – crisp and clean.
Freshly cut grass, acid tang. Good party wine on a hot Summer’s day.
More stock dumping by wineonline.ie in their recent pot luck sale.
A 7 year old Signature Sauvignon Blanc, signed by some Munster Legends. I wonder if they knew what they were signing.
Like Munster Rugby, this wine has past it’s best. Hopefully Johan Erasmus’ recent appointment will restore Munster’s reputation, sadly it won’t help this stale liquid that tastes as if it was made from grapes grown on the Fields of Athenry.
A light watery Sauvignon Blanc but we enjoyed it at dinner nonetheless.
From the Wild Geese Vat Pack an elegant Sauvignon Blanc. None of the acid tang of an NZ offering, this is a refined, confident, dry drop of white.
Amy and Lesley enjoyed this while we celebrated Ross’ elevation to Captaincy.
A first: wine specially selected by a Petrol Station which probably says more for Applegreen’s aspirations that my wine snobbery.
Very crisp, compact and tarty Sauvignon from the Valle Central in Chile.
Good party wine I guess.
One of a bring from Ian to his fifth decade bash.
Good write-up here:
This was on offer in Dunnes at €8.50 and as we liked their Cabernet we gave this a lash.
A workmanlike reliable Sauvignon Blanc, reliable for everyday drinking.
This is another wine you could only get in Cellar Master, so perhaps Alan is curating for O’Briens now.
Well made, solid, typical agrume tang with a flinty tint.
Pricey at €14.99
This was the white for the Collets at Dinner. An in your face Sav B – very tart, lots of goosberries and other citrus fruits. Refreshing.
Ross enjoyed it too on Sunday!
Looks like a Spar exclusive?
An homage to our trip to the Loire Valley – Calvet Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.
I was mildly surprised by the quality of this offering, probably because of the Calvet name on the bottle.
A typical Touraine; nice dry citrus tang, well balanced, nice aroma of
ammonia cut grass.
Their 2013 vintage has won a medal at the Paris Agricultural Show and I look forward to tasting it.
