A pleasing Sauvignon Blanc from Trader Joe's, the Sauvignon de Seguin Bordeaux White.
The Sauvignon de Seguin Bordeaux White is available exclusively at Trader Joe's (in the US) and sells for just $6.99. It is imported by Plume Ridge.
Sauvignon de Seguin is only produced with the Sauvignon grape from the Entre-Deux-Mers area. A beautiful yellow color with complex aromas of citrus. This wine is lively and full of freshness.
The 2020 Sauvignon de Seguin Bordeaux opens with an attractive aroma of citrus, a little lemongrass, a little guava and passion fruit and some herbal and floral notes.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth, tasty Sauvignon Blanc with good balance. There's a touch of sweet fruit in this dry wine plus plenty of acidity and a bit of a mineral note. It might be lacking a bit of depth on the fruit but it has a touch of salty minerality that is quite pleasing.
It ends dry, crisp and tart with good length. All things considered this is pretty nice.
