I recently had the opportunity to taste the Peju 2013 Sauvignon Blanc a second time at a recent local tasting. I had previously sampled the lovely white wine at a Peju wine dinner last fall and was impressed. The second opportunity convinced your humble Wine Bargain Sleuth that this Peju Sav Blanc was one of my favorite white wines, regardless of varietal, that I have tasted in the past year! With fruit grown on the valley floor in Napa Valley, the Peju 2013 Sav Blanc stands in lush contrast to more austere examples of the Sauvignon Blanc wines from New Zealand. The Peju white is one of the more complex domestic Sauvignon Blancs I have sampled, managing in one sip to hint at the lovely grapefruit, pineapple and honeysuckle overtones on the front palate, while the mid-palate experiences a lush passion fruit and creamy lemon quality, with a refreshing, clean finish that is delicious by itself or with a salad or light cheese. That is a lot of complexity for a modestly price wine from Napa Valley. Retailing for $22, but available with some smart shopping for closer to $19, this lovely Peju Sav Blanc has made its way to the front of my wine refrigerator and will delight your Sauvignon Blanc and white wine fans! The Peju 2013 Sav Blanc is a gold medal winner in the San Francisco Wine Competition, and it received a 90 rating from both Tasting Panel and the consumer-driven Cellar Tracker website. With the warmer weather of spring just around the corner, this is a wine that savvy wine sleuths should stock up on and now!
