Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc, 2005
Beautifully structured, with a floral hint at the beginning of the nose, which quickly gives way to some oak and butter. I loved the weight of the wine in my mouth, in the finish. Nice and rounded. Come to think of it, I like it better than the supposedly “cleaner” New Zealand examples because the oak lends more gravitas to the wine.
Goes nicely with some Chinese rice dumplings (thank you Sandy!!!) and pot stickers (thank you Katy’s Dumpings!) and chilli sauce. 🙂
