Cat's Phee on a Gooseberry Bush 2007
VARIETAL: Sauvignon Blanc
REGION: New Zealand
Remember that pucker you got when you first popped a Lemonhead in your mouth? Well amplify that about ten times and you'll get this extremely vibrant New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of cut grass and a certain l'eau du chat that the name implies are a little sharp. Explosions of zesty lime follow on your palate and reinforce the racy nature of this wine. I love the irreverence of the name, but I do wish the wine was a little more well rounded. Fun and refreshing, but a little one-dimensional.
I found mine at Cost Plus World Market, but if you require further investigation, check out the Coopers Creek site.
