Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle grapefruit with hints of pear. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. I would pair this very good value Sauvignon Blanc with pan seared scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose displays gooseberry, herbal and tropical notes. It has a delicious palate with a full fruited entry, again gooseberry layered with rock melon and a zesty long mineral herbal finish. This is the classic Babich style that complements a variety of foods, or drinks equally well on its own. It screams out for seafood (think fresh oysters)!
