Wine Review: The Balletto Sauvignon Blanc is lighter than expected. The wine has notes of grass and lime on the nose with a touch of granite. On the palate, a bit of lilac shows through and is complemented by white grapefruit, minerality, and a mild amount of acidity. Because of its subdued nature, I would recommend drinking it on its own, but it could be paired with a shrimp scampi. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: A dry, crisp and lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is understated and elegant with a driving acidity that's quenched by a generous and surprisingly lush mid-palate that brings a tense, perfect balance to this wine. The aromas are graceful with a combination of limy tropical fruit and a touch of classic Sauvignon blanc earthiness. It's bright and savory, tart and lush all in the same package.
