Although I think it probably rates my desire for intensity a bit low.

BORDEAUX BLANC 2006
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion and a bit of Muscadelle. Has a nose of lemon, grapefruit and straw. Medium bodied and very crisp with good acidity and some sweetness. It ends with sugary fruit and a tingle of acidity and alcohol.
We'll be serving it at Sarah's book reception this Saturday. This is the first case of a single wine that I've ever purchased. Stuff is good!
