A wine whine

I am pretty much a novice when it comes to wines, but I do like to drink them. We went to Carrefour the other day and decided to buy some new wines – our whites normally are sauvignon blancs from NZ and reds are usually pinot noirs or cabernet sauvignons from Australia because it’s what we know. We bought a Sancerre sauvignon blanc and opened it last night with dinner. The nose was lovely – sweet and syrupy, the first taste was crisp and dry, and the finish…well it kind of ended there. It was almost as if we hadn’t drunk the wine at all – odd !
