Taste it Again: Hillebrand 2009 Showcase Sauvignon Blanc Sparkling

11 Mar 2016

(September 10, 2015) ... Gotta love a good aged Sparkling, but before you open it you're just looking at a bottle of promise ... Though I'd have to say that a 6 year old Sauvignon Blanc sparkling is a crap shoot - aged Savvy B can be quite the odd-ball wine, but with bubbly you never know what's going to happen. Aroma-wise this one started with hints of grapefruit pith (and that's about it) ... the palate showed off much more: a mineral, zesty nature with plenty of vibrant acidity, a touch of melon rind, and a grapefruit pith/zest finish. It has stood up well to time; and there's still life left in those old bones (so to speak).
