"The Life of Riley" 2005 Western Australia Semillon Sauvignon Blanc ($14.99)
Clear straw color. Musky melon and a lighter whiff of lime. Rich-textured, mouth-filling, white fruit consistent with the nose - melons and pears and zippy lime - all wrapped up with bracing acidity. US Importer: Vine Street Imports, Philadelphia. (Apr 14, 2008)
FOOD MATCH: Worked very well with pork chops sauted with browned onions and topped with melted Gruyere cheese and a bit of dry mustard.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
