Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens light grapefruit and ripe peach bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and displays juicy and zesty acidity. The flavor profile is a slightly tart grapefruit with very nicely integrated minerality and lime. There is a touch of white pepper mixed in as well. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Sauvignon Blanc went well with Ken's creamy Caesar grilled chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of gooseberries, boxwood, alyssum, and lemon grass are followed on the palate by flavors of passion fruit, Meyer lemon, kiwi, and hints of wet stone. The touch of Semillon rounds out the mouthfeel of this racy, dry, crisp, and refreshing wine. This wine pairs beautifully with the brininess of fresh oysters. It would also complement light fish dishes like steamed clams with garlic butter, halibut, ahi tuna, poke with wasabi, and crispy sea bass with noodles.
