Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Looking for a lively Sauvignon Blanc that will pair well with a wide array of foods? Then Husch Vineyards’ 2011 should do the trick. With its zesty aromas of guava, lime, passion fruit and grapefruit, this is an easy-to-drink wine that will go well with global foods such as Mexican, Greek, Thai or Indian.
With its bold acidity and minerality, it’s exploding with citrus and tropical fruit—and is a pretty good buy for around $14. This is a good wine to have at the ready with your next Thai take-away.
Husch Vineyards, founded in 1971, is a well-known winery based in the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County. It’s a friendly and fun place to visit—their tasting room is an old pony barn dating back to the 1800s. Husch Vineyards, 4400 Highway 28, Philo. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
