New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
According to Mrs Mower
I am literally drinking champagne right now
Sorry in advance
Red drinker here.
Sorry if this offends
Most Sauvignon blancs are drinkable. Look out for Entre Deux Mers generic whites from Bordeaux. Excellent value for money.
White Rioja if you can find it Baron del Rey.
Been on the GnT & Provence rose tonight. Not in the same glass mind.
The best wine is whatever you like mind. Apart from mateus rose.
And she's right according to the Vivino app. The best whites at the moment between £10 and £20 are mostly NZ sauvignons.
This was THE best based on number of ratings against rating itself
Check out this great Wine from Johnson Estate. I just scanned it with the @Vivino app. Johnson Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2017 | Wine Info - http://www.vivino.com/wines/155278137?utm_source=app
Nice one Mike.
I’ll let her know.
Radyr Golf Club do Allan Scott NZ SB and that’s great. Especially sat out on the patio in the sun.
Pity about the sun
This is our favourite white from Collioure. Not Sauvignon Blanc, but Grencahe Blanc, Gris with Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermentino. You don't see Collioure wines often in the UK, but try it if you do.
"Collioure is a tiny appellation within the Roussillon region (also known as French Catalonia) in the southeastern corner of France, close to the border with Spain on the Mediterranean coast around 30 kilometers (20 miles) southwest of Perpignan. It produces powerful dry red and white wines from the most southerly of France's vineyards. The appellation comprises four communes, the one from which it takes its name, plus Cerbère, Port-Vendres and Banyuls.
Collioure wines are the area's dry table wines, while those labeled Banyuls are the sweet wines produced from exactly the same vineyards. The proportion of grapes that become Collioure or Banyuls wine in any one year depends on the particular characteristics of the vintage."
Sounds complicated to me
We'll be there one evening soon. Hoping the weather is finally about to turn.
Llanerch Vineyard have a nice dry white of their own - and when it’s sunny you can drink it in the garden overlooking the vines. Very pleasant indeed.
We built holiday cottages there years ago.
You built those?
They were built in 1988 ish, I was working for a firm, sub-contracting, based in Bonvilston. There was a flat and cafe there we did as well.
Yeah, with his bare hands. Not poofta hands like the Doctor and @Eat Y'self Fitter.
Rumour has it that Al hewed out a single block from Southerndown Cliffs and whittled them down into the cottages you see in the photo.
The cafe and flat are now rooms and a cookery school I think
It’s an awesome place
I think the owner back then was a Peter Williams, I was told he sold the place on some years back.
