Jackson-Triggs Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Okanagan

Dennis picked this bottle because he wants a local white wine and he likes the frosty glass bottle and gold label. $19.00 Personally, I am not a big fan of Sauvignon Blanc, because they can be quite pungent and herbaceous (good aroma and flavour to others). This wine is medium body, 12.5% alcohol, and crisp (a signature for most Okanagan whites). It has intense citrus, mineral, herbal, gooseberry, and grapefruit aroma. The finish reminds me of grapefruit or lemon zest (and slightly unpleasant). Dennis had a different opinion. He finds the wine refreshing and the finish tasty.
I suppose I would like it more if I pair it with some food... potted crab, pesto sauce, or brie
