Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild wet stone bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, round, and slightly tart. The flavor profile is mild mineral infused green apple with a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and its mineral notes linger for a bit. This wine would pair well with a Monte Cristo sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This livewire bottling is crafted by Buitenverwachting (Dutch for "beyond expectation") — a Sauvignon specialist recognized for their elegant, mineral-tinged whites. Packed with zesty flavors of passion fruit, green pepper, kiwi and lime backed by pronounced herbal notes and a minerally tang, it displays an elegance typical of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.
