Wine Review: This brilliant straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc is another solid offering from Decoy. It opens with a very fragrant and attractive grapefruit juice and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and flavors. The flavor profile is a tasty mild yellow grapefruit with notes of gentle zesty lime and faint minerality. I also detect hints of white peach and a touch of nectarine pit. The finish is dry and its flavors and pleasant acidity linger nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is seafood friendly. I would pair it with swordfish skewers or crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This enticing wine offers vivid flavors of pink grapefruit and white peach, as well as lovely notes of lemon zest and citrus blossom. On the palate, refreshing acidity mingles with a subtle undercurrent of sweet fruit that carries through to a bright and lively finish.
