Wine Review: Evans & Tate Classic 2014 Sauvignon Blanc
One of the great things about Western Australia is the high quality wine that emanates out of the Margaret River region. And their Sauvignon Blanc has to be one of our favourites. Fresh and full of flavour, this wine from Evans & Tate has just enough fruitiness to suit a wide variety of tastes, and even wider food pairing options. Keep reading for more details and our final score.
We are often surprised how many people turn their nose up at this wine variety, simply because they don’t like white wine. Perhaps they previously tasted a very dry Chardonnay, or an over-fizzy sparkling wine. It is not until they try a chilled glass of a good Sauv Blanc that they can really judge whether they like it. And many who are willing to do so, become its greatest fan thereafter!
And this particular offering from Evans & Tate is one that we enjoy on a regular basis. It’s juicy succulent taste is perfect with a wide variety of seafood, chicken, lamb, goat’s cheese, pesto, vegetable dishes, and clear soup.
The secret we find to serving any white wine is getting the temperature right. Too cold and their flavours are masked; too warm and they become flat and lose their structure. A perfect temperature for Sauvignon Blanc is around 45 degrees F or 7 degrees C. So if you are chilling your white wine in a fridge set to 35F, it will be way too cold to serve at that temperature and may need to sit at room temperature just prior to serving.
