Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Cuvaison opens with an inviting gooseberry and honeydew melon bouquet with hints of gardenia and fennel. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, delicate, and classy. The flavor profile is a tasty light lemon-lime and saline blend with notes of chalky minerality and mango. We also detected hints of white grapefruit, fennel, and a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry, and its flavors and gentle polished acidity drifts away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this very food friendly Sauvignon Blanc with steamed cod filet with ginger and scallions. Enjoy – KWGTP
