Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Merry Edwards is very good. Everyone on the panel enjoyed it. It opens with a faint Bartlett pear bouquet with a hint of vanilla. We also detected some tropical scents along with hints of lychee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and easy going. The flavor profile is a tasty pear with hints of lychee, mild minerality and green apple. The finish is dry and its flavors last for quite a while. The panel suggested pairing this crowd pleasing and food friendly Sauvignon Blanc with broiled halibut or Chilean sea bass. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: In the glass, the wine is mouthwatering, showing off floral notes of jasmine, orange blossoms and lemon verbena. This delicate perfume is complemented by rich citrus tones of lime zest, tangerine and mandarin orange. White peach and ripe pear along with tropical accents of pineapple, lychee and guava round out the aromatic profile. A hint of minerality, along with a bit of exotic barrel spice -- cumin and coriander -- add even more intrigue. On the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc balances zesty crispness with weight and richness. This reflects its barrel fermentation and twice-weekly lees stirring regime during six months in French oak, 18% new. The finish is classic sweet grapefruit.
