Castra Rubra Cellar Classic Thracian Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Bulgaria


My Rating 77 Points.  
Price $15.

Light Straw in color with a golden/green hue.

Gorgeous nose of wildflowers, tropical fruits, lemons, grapefruits, mangoes, kiwis, bananas, peaches and melons.

Full-bodied and buttery, with high acidity.

Dry and tart on the palate with green apples, grapefruits, citrus, oak, cream, grass and lemons.

Medium finish with bitter almonds.

This is a Drinkable Sauvignon Blanc, but not more than that. Simple and better with food, but not by itself. Too bitter for my taste.

A little of a let down, for me, since the chief wine maker is Michel Rolland. I usually like his stuff very much.

13% alcohol by volume.
