The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc from Trump Winery is an excellent wine...as I'm sipping this wine away, I can only think about buying more bottles to keep a stock in the cellar. This wine is easy to drink and will attract both the wine curious and the connoisseur. The best thing is that this is a vegan-friendly wine since it is unfiltered and fined with bentonite.
This Sauvignon Blanc is a pale, straw yellow and clear wine. The aromas are moderate with hints of citrus fruits, grass, apricot, asparagus and elderflower. The wine is medium sweet, youthful and crisp to the taste. Overall, its flavor is moderate with a good balance between sugar and alcohol. This Sauvignon Blanc has light buttery notes as well as lemongrass and green apple. The wine is easy on the palate, and while not too complex it is maximized for its overall enjoyment.
My overall notes for this wine is that it is a crisp wine, with a light body, excellent balance and light buttery notes. I suggest pairing this wine with vegetables or salads, as long as they are not too spicy or garlicky. Highly recommend giving this wine a try, as this is an excellent Virginia wine.
Kudos to the winemaker at Trump!
