Today’s Wine Review


A three-day weekend means firing up the grill and opening up the wine bottles. For one of the meals, I grilled thick cut pork chops that turned out to be super moist and very tasty. For the wine I decided on a Sauvignon Blanc.

I opened a bottle of Airfield Estates, Sauvignon Blanc vintage 2014, from Yakima Valley Washington. The wine was almost clear in the glass with just a very faint hint of pale yellow color. I smelled lemons and minerals when I stuck my nose in the glass. The wine was very dry with a mineral taste and a light citrus taste. It was a light and crisp wine that had a dry finish.

I would put this wine up against some of the California Sauvignon Blancs I’ve tasted. The wine was dry and crisp and clean tasting and went well with the pork chops.
