Today's Wine Tasting Note

Katnook Estate 1996 Coonawarra Sauvignon Blanc ($19.99)
Clear pale gold. Delicious aromas of grapefruit with light green-chile accents, balanced and fresh. Full, bright fruit flavor, fresh and crisp. It may be just off-dry, but firm acidity holds it in balance. Delicious Sauvignon Blanc, but pushing the limits on value. U.S. importer: Epic Wines, Aptos, Calif.; Selected and Shipped by Old Vines Australia. (March 6, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Broiled salmon in a light teriyaki sauce. The sweet-tart sauce seems to enhance the marriage of the food and the wine.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
