Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Alysian is very good. This wine opens with a light pineapple and faint apricot bouquet with a hint of green bean. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused gentle grapefruit with notes of lemon-lime and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Panel thought this Sauvignon Blanc was easy to drink, versatile and food friendly. We suggested pairing it with grilled mahi-mahi or swordfish. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Grist Vineyard was purchased by my grandparents in the late 70's. I oversee farming operations and live full time on the property. 2014 marks Alysian's inaugural year of working with this fantastic mountain fruit. This wine has distinctive green grass, lemongrass and Daphne floral notes on the nose. The medium body palate carries wet stone and grapefruit impressions.
