I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I hate white wine.
It took me nearly 24 years to tolerate the watery slither of most whites. Recently, I waxed poetic about Woop Woop Chardonnay, which is one of the first white wines I can honestly say I would spend human dollars on.
I always assumed white wine was for Hamptons moms to chase their Xanax. But last week, I FINALLY SAW THE LIGHT, and now I’m a believer.
Long Meadow Ranch 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is a national treasure. It took me about two weeks to get the bottles from Napa, but trust me, this wine is worth the wait.
This Sauvignon Blanc is exceptionally light and refreshing. I have yet to try a wine with more delicious peach and citrus notes.
In short, it’s the summer in a bottle you can enjoy all year long.
This wine is a bit of a splurge (~$22), but consider it an investment in your happiness. One day, as your old, bitter ass sits awaiting the sweet embrace of death, you will remember this wine and look back fondly on the experience.
