Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very attractive ripe apple bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and citrusy. The flavor profile is a pleasant honeydew melon with notes of gentle minerality blended in. The finish is quite dry and rather refreshing. It was a crowd pleaser and did not last long. I would pair this wine with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pungent aromas come forward such as grapefruit, citrus, and honeydew melon. A few more swirls of the glass reveal a wonderful depth and concentration in the wine. On the palate, tropical fruit characters abound, such has white peach and pineapple. Honeysuckle elements from the Sauvignon Musque linger, creating a rich mouthfeel without any cluttering oak characters. A long and lingering finish culminates the progression of this dynamic and beautiful Sauvignon Blanc.
