Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a light pineapple, butterscotch, and coconut like bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied and crisp wine has a flavor profile of lime and green apple. There was also a note of green beans detected. The finish is dry and lingers a bit. The panel felt this wine would be a very nice match for linguine with clam sauce or brie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Made in a refreshing aperitif style, Clayhouse Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a bouquet of orange blossom, pineapple, lemon grass, peach, and hints of guava. There’s a touch of minerality that enhances the slightly floral notes contributed by the Musque clone. The blend includes 7% floral-enhancing Chenin Blanc to boost floral character, and 2% Roussanne to provide body and spice.
