I love bringing a bottle to any occasion, whether it be a party, smaller gathering, or no particular at all. It always linger in the back of my mind whether it’s a wine I’ll end up writing about. Sometimes they’re meant to be part of that memory, that event, and nothing else. Sometimes I don’t think about it. And then sometimes…
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc from Delish Wines is as simplistic and approachable as life should be. I won’t kid myself. That label drew me in above all else. Does anything else seem more apropos for the Summer then perfectly scooped ice cream cones?
This was reasonably priced at around $12.00. I wouldn’t go much more than that. Sites have it between that and $15.00. This is just a personal opinion but I’ve never loved Sauv Blanc. When I drink it I keep questioning why I don’t care for it or if my palate doesn’t coincide with what’s being presented to me. No need to sweat the small stuff but it’s not my favorite grape. That could re-evolve with time.
With that negativity out of the way, I did find the good in the wine. For me, the tart balanced with the sweet worked for me. I’m always looking for a little bitterness balanced with berries, tropical, and citrus fruits whenever I can. This only applies to whites. The sour end comes from herbs and grapefruit. I can never have enough of the latter.
When I’m at a laid back or even more frenzied party, I don’t tend to analyze the nose or notes as much. I’m in the moment. And obviously for this one I wasn’t, or I wouldn’t be taking all of these pictures and texting notes to myself about what I tasted. I promise I’m not crazy. Well…
I would recommend this bottle to anyone who likes fun. If you want visual joy while sipping, this bottle is going to accomplish that. The tint of the wine itself is a winner too. It may not look like ice cream but that would be gullible to the infinite power to think otherwise.
This goes with anything and nothing. I treated myself to a plate of meats and cheeses, and it was decimated in minutes.
Either I’m reading way too much into this, or I love that this is the only wine they carry. It gives them time give more and dedication to their harvesting and cultivating. That sounds wonderful. Their website is easy to navigate. This is only going to draw me back to their wine. Yes, they did their job and perfectly. I love Summer.
Here is their contact info if you want to, well, get in contact.
This past weekend was the first time I’ve seen this bottle and I hope it’s not the last. I suspect you can obtain this at multiple retailers. Myself, I found mine at Harbour Spirits of Severna Park, MD.

As we roll on with the Summer (and we got a lot to go), I will hopefully find some great whites and other season fare to rave out. I’m confident in that.
Thanks so much.
