If you've read the older Dark Horse reviews I've done, you'll know I have been very surprised by the quality of product that is coming out of their bottles and the Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. The upfront aroma is predominantly heavy citrus notes and a hint at a more tart flavor, which is not a lie. The flavors in this wine are very tart, bright and extremely crisp, very much like the Sauv Blancs out of Australia and New Zealand, this one has that tang of flavor you don't really get from any other grape varieties. The finish might be the most interesting part of this wine, with a light woody flavor you'd think this was barrel finished, but I am almost certain this wine was done 100% in a stainless steel fermenter which makes for an interesting finish in itself. I drank this while eating some fried chicken and pesto tortellini which paired very well, but I would also recommend this wine for very light fish meals, or even heartier fish like trout. Once again, a great bottle from Dark Horse.
