Emus Running Wild In Key West


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!

Cheers!

Tried to find a bottle of this today, didn't have any luck! Bought a bottle of Namaqua Diamond Coast from South Africa instead (it was half price), but I am setting it aside as I am off to have some shropshire blue cheese and oatcakes with a glass red j p chenet my dad gave me!
