Smell of green berries
Taste is fresh and nice but might lack a little bit of character. A bit sweeter than expected for a sauvignon blanc. A brilliant wine to sip outside during summer.
I rate this at 4/5 where 5 is best. I will probably buy this wine again.
Of wines, whites or sauvignon blancs? Don't know the answer to either of the questions? Sauvignon blanc was my favourite white wine for a couple of years, so maybe somewhere between 10 and 30 different sauvignon blancs. I honestly couldn't tell, didn't keep a record or tasting notes before.
The last year I have written about most wines, but not all, that I have tasted here so that it might help me avoid buying wines I didn't like again. I don't like spending money on bad stuff but what is worse is when I buy something because the label looks vaguely familiar and I don't remember that is because I already bought and hated that wine at some other occasion. With this site as reference I will avoid repeating bad purchases. Not that the Ned was a bad purchase, I remember it as a pretty decent wine.
