Wine Wednesday: 2015 Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc

Disclosure: I was provided this wine as a media sample. All opinions are my own.

It’s finally summertime here in the Pacific Northwest! The skies are blue, flowers are blooming, and the summertime whites and rosés are flooding the market!

This Sauvignon Blanc has a nose full of fresh citrus zest, gooseberry, and slight hints of unripe peach. On the palate, there is a lot of acidity, more unripe peach, and hints of lemon zest make this a lovely wine to sip on the back porch. However, with the amount of acidity on it, I would recommend opening this, pour a glass, let it sit in your fridge overnight, and then come back to it the next day. As I went back to it after doing these same steps, I was more and more impressed with the wine.

I would serve this with seafood such as ceviche or sea bass. I also wouldn’t be opposed to serving this with something light like a mixed green salad with a simple vinaigrette dressing.
