Mixed Case Bottle 3 — LoHud Wine of the Week: Mahi ‘Ballot Block’ Sauvignon Blanc 2009


For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Wine Geeks in Armonk..

LoHud Wine of the Week

Mahi ‘Ballot Block’ Sauvignon Blanc 2009: Creamy white peach, honeydew melon and passion fruit balanced with crisp notes of grapefruit and lime. Region: Marlborough, New Zealand. Goes with: Salads and fish and it works well with harder-to-pair Asian and Mexican cuisines. Price: $29.99. Why we chose it: Unlike most Sauvignon Blancs this wine sees a little bit of oak which gives it an unusually luscious, creamy texture.
