(KCBS) – Sauvignon Blanc is once again the dominant choice as the wine to have when enjoying oysters on the half shell. Taylor Shellfish Farms just had the 17th annual 2011 Pacific Coast Oyster Wine Competition. This judging is limited to the west coast. Sauvignon Blanc came out on top with its light, crisp, clean taste with a hint of herbaciousness, KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David said. Five of the 10 winners are Sauvignon Blancs.
The winners (listed alphabetically):
* Prior Oyster Award Winner
** Multiple prior Oyster Awards
