A Goode Sauvignon Blanc
Following up my Summer Sippers post I thought I'd add another to the list! Murphy-Goode Winery is based out of Sonoma and I just had a chance to try their 2008 "The Fume" Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is great on it's own, as I had it, but would be extremely food friendly too.
On the nose I got quite a bit of citrus and pineapple. On the palate there is more of the tropical fruits, and even a hint of apricot for me. Although it was mostly fermented in stainless steel there is a roundness from a touch of oak barrels used too. Try this wine with seafood. Oysters would be delicous and forget the lemons...just leisurely sip this in between each one for that hit of acidty and enjoy!
For more about their wines and to vote for me for "A Really Goode Job":
