If this Sauvignonasse Bauer 2012, from the Romanian wine region of Dragasani would be a car, it would be quite the opposite of a powerful car of a wine: very little complexity, jammy aromas, powerful oak or long aftertaste. It’s rather like a Jeep: stripped to the bare essentials for summer drinking -freshness, acidity, zestfulness, low on alcohol- can ride any terrain.
Very pale straw color in the glass, with a peppery and zesty lemon nose. Then in the mouth it goes by the textbook: vivid green herb and cucumber flavors with a touch of white peach sharpness to the acidity that gives a more cool-climate edge. On the palate is very soft, a bit of beeswax to tone down the acidity, with some minerality showing towards the finish.
A powerful but not overpowering companion for a light summer dish of meatballs with sauteed green beans and vegetables. It is slim, lean and fit, no extra „fat” or embellishments.
