Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a light green apple like bouquet with hints of coconut and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and balanced with cantaloupe and lime flavors. There were notes of minerality detected as well. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. The panel felt this wine would pair well with chicken cordon bleu or ham. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: “This Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard delivers aromas of citrus, green apple with a lively herb spice notes. We used partial stainless steel fermentation to preserve the Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant varietal character and fresh, crisp quality. A touch of Semillon is added to the blend for enhanced texture and weight. For me this wine represents the classic Washington style of Sauvignon Blanc with a crisp citrus character and a soft mouthfeel.”
