Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a banana and Italian lemon drop cookie bouquet with hints of honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and mouthcoating. The flavor profile is honeydew melon and peach with notes of ginger. Hints of delicate saline, minerality and oak. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity fade away. The Tasting Panel would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with swordfish skewer with mango salsa. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Very fine gold color with a green sheen. Its nose has a flowery fruity bouquet. Being pure and honest it is seducer from the outset. Flowers flit around, trees bend down to give their most beautiful fruits to us and the air we breathe is so sweet in this garden full of sweetness that it is intoxicating. Lively, supple and welcoming taste. Matching wine and food: Pike with white butter sauce or chanterelle mushroom omelet.
