Wine Review: This pale yellow wine has tiny bubbles in it, but it is not effervescent. It offers a light fruit cocktail syrup like aroma with hints of granny smith apples. On the palate, the wine is acidic, juicy, and a tad tart. The flavor profile has vibrant lemon-lime like flavors. The finish is very very dry and has some length to it. We recommend that this wine be served cool, not cold with sharp cheddar cheese or Gruyere. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine emphasizes fruit in the aromas and mid palate with a finish broadened by malolactic fermentation. It’s fresh and quaffable with distinctive lime, grass and a murmur of basil.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Sauvignon Blanc.
