About This Wine:
And when the Sauvignon Blanc hails from California’s Paso Robles region, that spectrum stretches ever wider.
Take the 2019 Bodega Mariposa Sauvignon Blanc as an example. This is a wine that suggests ripe pineapple, Meyer lemon and honeydew melon on the nose, framed by a “bed” of pretty white flowers. On the palate, that Meyer lemon impression shifts to a note of sweet lemon candy. We often top our seafood fillets with a squeeze of lemon juice, and we often use pineapple and melon as ingredients in fruity/spicy salsas for fish-dish toppers. So it makes perfect sense to pair such dishes with a wine that exhibits some of those flavors.
The 2019 Bodega Mariposa Sauvignon Blanc is such a wine, and its Paso Robles appellation is a virtual guarantee of quality. P.S.: If you’re not a fish fan, try it with well-seasoned roasted chicken.
