Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild green apple bouquet with hints of grapefruit and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lime with hints of tangerine, grapefruit and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. This panel suggested that this Sauvignon Blanc would be a nice summer party wine. They suggested pairing it with bacon wrapped scallops or swordfish kabobs with a mango dipping sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow with fine golden highlights. The bouquet reveals delicate vegetal scents of green pepper, tomato-plant leaves and sage followed by pleasant fruity notes of ripe peach and melon. The palate is fresh and aromatic with a notable and excellent flavour. The full finish is harmonious and prolongs the aromatic aspects. Attems Sauvignon Blanc's partners with poultry and similar light meats, and with fish that is grilled
