Friday evening I had the opportunity to taste to different Sauvignon Blanc’s in a side by side tasting.

Stellenbosch 2006 South Africian Sauvignon Blanc and Mud House 2007 Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Once again, in my opinion the Mud House, New Zealand was slightly better than the Stellenbosch from South Africa.

At first while tasting the Stellenbosh, I noticed the crisp citrus flavors. However, the Mud House flavors were more defined. There were intense passion fruit with underlying lemon and lime flavors with a crisp finish.

Both wines were very good, but my favorite for the evening was the Mud House

The Mud House isn’t an expensive bottle…$12 at our local retailer.
