Sometimes I find a value that is so good I can’t believe it. The H3 Sauvignon Blanc is in that category. Sauvignon Blanc can be very hit or miss, and I really enjoyed this one! H3 is a label produced by Columbia Crest in Paterson, Washington. Now this label is huge in terms of production, but the H3 really stands out. This label is specifically wines that are made from grapes grown in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA (American Viticulture Area). This is an area that is known for growing some fantastic warmer climate grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Merlot. Although, there are a total of 37 different varieties planted in the AVA!
If you are on the hunt for a great value, and a delicious Sauvignon Blanc, than look no further. This wine really impressed me from the moment it hit my glass. Tropical fruits hit my senses upon my first sip, but there was a crisp and ripe feel to this wine. Sauvignon Blanc can sometimes have an “herbaceous” flavor to it, and this wine is a fine example of why that is a good thing! From start to finish this wine was just, fresh. I enjoyed this wine served very chilled, and it is perfect for any occasion. Cheers!
