Wine Review: This pale straw color Sauvignon Blanc from Cloudy Bay opens with an attractive red ruby grapefruit bouquet with hints of lime and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, nicely acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty ripe grapefruit with notes mild minerality. I also detected hints of lime and green apple. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. This went well with my grilled trout at Legal Sea Foods. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, followed by nectarine and lemongrass tones. The palate is fresh and focused with ripe citrus, stonefruit, fennel and mineral notes lingering on the persistent finish. Our Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious partner to a tomato and goat curd salad drizzled with fresh basil oil.
