The 2013 – 13 Celsius Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is light and refreshing with floral and lemony citrus aromas. We found this wine to be balanced with flavors of lime and a hint of pink grapefruit. Typically being a fan of more full-bodied varietals, we were pleasantly surprised by the complexity of this crisp Sauvignon Blanc. For around $15 per bottle, the 13 Celsius Sauvignon Blanc is a wonderful wine to enjoy on it’s own or paired with a light salad, fish, or pasta dish.
This nose begins with aromas of creamy lemon, light tropical fruits, and just a hint of grass. The flavors are heavy lemon citrus with a hint of grapefruit and melon. This is a light bodied, crisp, clean wine with a moderate finish. But hey, for $12.99 you can’t beat the price for a nice drinkable everyday wine. It paired very well with the ginger lemon Tilapia we had for dinner. Plus the label states they are a family owned farm that practices sustainable farming. An all around nice wine from California’s Mendocino county.
