Dry to the Oak

The oak is in control of this wine - no doubt, but it isn't a bad as most oak driven wines.  The crisp lemon and pear fruit flavors are still hanging in there right next to the fruit and make a wonderful pairing.  Still - too much oak.

Dry Sav

This was a very dry Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa.  The fruit is very light and somewhat submissive to the dried oak flavors.  This wine is a miss for me as a whole, except that it would be good to cool down with on a summer night.

Dry South African Wine
May 13, 2008
1 star 1 star
This is a much drier sav. blanc than I had expected - even for South Africa.  This drinks more like a Chenin Blanc than a Sauvignon Blanc.  The crispness of this wine makes it easy to drink with food but the oak is still a little too strong for my tastes.
