The holidays in the A Glass After Work household are always a fusion of traditions, since I’m Jewish and Hubby isn’t. With Easter and Passover falling at the same time, we spent the first part of the weekend celebrating Passover and Sunday celebrating Easter. It was the perfect day for a leisurely brunch, a walk around Georgetown, people watching in the new waterfront park along Georgetown’s harbor, and an evening of Game of Thrones and wine.
The 2010 Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc was a light, greenish yellow. On the nose, there were fresh-cut green peppers, grass, granny smith apples, and a hint of pears. In the mouth, there were green peppers, grass, and granny smith apples. The wine had a light-to medium body with good acidity.
Is this worth a glass after work? Definitely! If you see this wine in the store, grab it; you won’t be disappointed. At an SRP of $16, this wine is a good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc option. It’s fresh and clean, and perfect for the springtime weather. Food pairing for this wine is a little trickier, but I wish I had some fish or a big salad to go with it. As it turned out, though, it was the perfect way to bring the first weekend of Passover and Easter Sunday to a close.
Question of the Day: Did you have any good wines for either Passover or Easter?
