Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with mild grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic, and vibrant. The flavor profile is a ripe yellow grapefruit with hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a bit. I would suggest pairing this wine with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard is a crisp, racy style of Sauvignon Blanc with citrus characteristics. We use partial stainless steel fermentation to preserve the Sauvignon Blanc’s pure, fresh, vibrant character.
