A Sauvignon Blanc Brand That Stands Out Above The Rest
Did someone say wine?! Happy International Sauvignon Blanc Day! Yup! That day does exist, and today is that day! So, go and enjoy it like i did!
Oh! And it’s Friday! EVEN BETTER folks!
So it’s been a while since I’ve been out without kid in tow, but earlier this week, I had the pleasure of attending a pretty fabulous wine tasting event put together by The Fabulous Romy of Romy Raves and The Crossings. I have to say, I was so impressed by the ambiance, wine and cooking activities that they put together for us at Hipcooks East. The venue was intimate, the attendees were marvelous and the wine was amazing! It was the perfect setting for an amazing evening out with fellow bloggers in Los Angeles.
Our night started out with us around a cooking counter ( I bet it has an official name, but I called it that). It reminded me of reading circle from when I was in kindergarten. Remember those half tables where all of the kids sat on one side and the teacher sat in front of us? Yeah That. Well, it was similar to that learning style but as adults and in the kitchen. I learned so much and walked away with a wealth of information like how to chop, how to clean a knife, how to sear food and the list goes on! We cooked 3 courses including a fabulous dessert!
The food was delicious but the wine was pretty amazing too! I don’t drink that often, but when I do, I usually go for a Cab or Pinot Grigio. So after having a tasting of this Sauvignon Blanc, I have to say, I was very very impressed. I found it to be pretty easy to find online and offered at a pretty affordable price. As for the taste of it…The Crossings Sauvignion Blanc shows lifted notes of bell pepper and passionfriut, underpinned with citrus notes. It was sweet but not like a dessert wine. I got a sense of crisp flavors which I am sure would pair very well with seafood dishes. Cheers to that!
ABOUT THE CROSSINGS WINE
The Crossings wines are grown and crafted in the Awatere Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand. The Awatere Valley is the southernmost, coolest and driest of the three Marlborough winegrowing sub-regions. The soil types and weather in the Awatere Valley conspire to slow down the ripening of grapes grown here, creating even more intense fruit flavours and fresher, crisper acids than elsewhere in Marlborough.
