2008 Root One Sauvingnon Blanc

Root 1 Sauvignon Blanc has been one of our favorites for a while now, and it’s embarrassing to think about how much money we’ve spent on it.

 The white wine is pretty sour and citrusy, typical of Sauv. Blancs.  More fruit taste breaks through than in other types of the same varietal.  It has a strong bite, and if that’s not something you enjoy then this wine isn’t for you.

 Many whites tend to be bland.  Even though the Sauv. Blanc varietal is more like grapefruit juice than grape juice, Root 1 in particular is strong.  It goes extremely well with spicy food, especially Asian or Mexican food.  The spice and sour flavors even each other out.

 It’s refreshing in a weird way, like a glass of sour lemonade during the middle of summer. 

 Interestingly, this wine is one of the only ones available in the US that’s made with actual root stock, hence why it’s called Root 1.  But we’ll get into this more later, with our second post about Root One.
