Red C’s Kosher Sauvignon Blanc


2010 Red C Sauvignon Blanc

2010 Red C Sauvignon Blanc

I mentioned last week that I’m a little behind in blogging, but I think that might have been an understatement.  As I started to put together my top Kosher wine list, I realized there were several wines I tasted during the Jewish High Holidays (back in October) that I never posted about.  Admittedly, those holidays were all about Covenant Wines.  Lot 18 was selling both their high end and their more affordable wines at fabulous prices, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to stock up on wines that I’d been dying to try.

2010 Red C Sauvignon Blanc  Back LabelThe 2010 Red C Sauvignon Blanc (winery) was a light lemon yellow.  On the nose, there were strong grapefruit and gooseberry aromas mixed with a hint of grass and green peppers.  In the mouth there were grapefruits, gooseberries, and hints of grass and thyme.  The wine had bright acidity and a light-to-medium body.

Is this worth a glass after work? Sure…you won’t be drinking anything out of the ordinary, but you’ll have a decent, reliable glass of wine.  At $20, this wine was ok, but not my favorite of the Covenant Wines.  There was something in the finish that made me raise my eyebrows, although I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was.  It was almost Splenda-like, which is not a flavor I enjoy.  It took the wine from 3.5/4 corks down to 3 corks.  That said, it was ok and surprisingly New Zealand like Sauvignon Blanc.

Question of the Day: Are you a Sauvignon Blanc fan?  Do you have a preference of New Zealand-style over French or California style?

    Thanks for the SB review! I’m always looking for a new one! I do generally prefer New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, but I’m always up for trying different regions. I’ve had some great SB from Chile and even Canada!
