I know there are those that knock the household known named wines, but I don’t judge on any wines from two buck chuck to the pricey bottles without a little taste first… then I judge.
The Bogle Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is a little favorite of mine. The price of a bottle is about the same as a glass of wine at a restaurant at approximately $12. This is a great deal for anyone just wanting a fun, clean, crisp summer wine.
The first nose is musty, a bit mouldy that then becomes almost aromaless, but with a hint of mowed grass. On the palate you get Honeydew melon and fresh citrus fruits. It is tangy and a little acidic, somewhat delicate and very easy to drink. Smooth, refreshing, and a nice lasting finish that makes you keep sipping and enjoying. This is not a very complex wine at all, which is absolutely fine, given its low price. It is still a wonderful choice for a Sauvignon Blanc.
I had a takeout pizza from Local 149 with smoked salmon, boursin and spinach that was incredible and partnered perfectly with the Bogle Sauvignon Blanc.
This is such a fun, playful and enjoyable reasonably priced wine. Don’t judge on the lower priced wines… it is all about personal tastes. My personal taste does not discriminate on price… only on taste. This one is worthy of a good, keeping in stock of wine.
