2015 Fairbourne Estate Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, Marlborough - Wine Review

Wow, this was one of the better Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand that I have had in a while.  Blind, I would have guessed this to be from the Loire Valley.  Light gold in color.  The nose has nice white grapefruit with a nice minerality.  Those qualities contiue thru to the pa;late.  It is ripe but well within reason.  Excellent acidity.  Long finish.  My only complaint?  I tried to buy some and was unable to find any.  

2016 Jean Reverdy et Fils Sancerre La Reine Blanche, France, Loire Valley - Wine Review

Always one of the better Sancerre's from the home of Sauvignon Blanc.  This one is a bit surprising though.  Blind, I might have guessed New Zealand.  The nose has that gooseberry quality and very fresh.  On the palate, the gooseberry continues thru.  Nice acidity.  Plenty of verve.  Should be great with food.  Nice finish.  Always a nice value.
