Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored wine opens with a gooseberry and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied wine is racy with tart lime and green apple flavors with some integrated minerality as well. The finish is quite dry and subtle. The panel felt this Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with soft cheeses, Thai food, or bacon based meals. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Gooseberry and passionfruit characters dominate the nose with hints of lime and nettles. The wine is mouth filling with vibrant fruit and mid palate richness, finishing rich and racy with excellent length and crispness.
