(Au)Thor's View

There are a number of wine blogs we like to browse regularly - oenoLog is definitely one of them.

It's worth a daily visit, even if only for a chuckle at the latest clever title for his posts (some of our favourites: Chiquet Magnet, It's a Cru, Cru Summer, Riesling Star, Angelo of Mercy, Too young or Thuaud?). More importantly, there's a lot of interest and value in the enormous range of wines covered.

Blog author Thor Iverson recently reviewed the 2005 Seresin Estate Sauvignon Blanc calling it "one of the most polished and professional Marlborough sauvignons on the market". He comments: "Bitter melon, lemongrass, intense lime and grapefruit, pomegranate, and acidity so vivid it’s palate-drying form the heart of this wine, but what’s striking is the confident, almost swaggering sophistication in the face of all that boisterous sauvignon-ness. Very, very good."

Oh, and 'Original Seresin' is a pretty catchy post title too - wish we'd thought of it first !
