One evening last week, before my trek to Ohio, we let the Emus run wild in our back yard! Four Emus 2005 Sauvignon Blanc that is. What a fun, full flavored wine this was. It had to be fun with a label like they have! I am loving these fun, colorful, artsy labels for a change. And even some of them have some darn good wine behind those labels!
Anyhow, let's get back to this lovely wine. It was a 2005 Four Emus Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon blend with it split between the grapes 50-50. The alcohol level was 12.4%. This is a wine produced on Dale Road, Middle Swan, Western Australia. It has a nice looking straw color with just a hint of green. With this bright appearance, after unscrewing the cap, you get a nice whiff of tropical fruit aromas. On the palate I found bunches of tropical fruit flavors with a hint of, let's say, green peas and a tiny taste of cut hay in the background. It had a nice texture in the mouth with lots of bright acidity teasing your tongue.
I suggest you gather a herd of Emus for yourself because at $7.99, you cannot beat this wine for a spring evening!
