Wine Review: This pale yellow color Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fennel and green apple bouquet with a hint of green pepper. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a blend green pepper and green pear. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This wine would pair well with five fruit chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This incredible Sauvignon Blanc displays the excellent cool climate characters of the vintage. At first swirl, vibrant lemon grass, citrus peel, and pineapple aromas leap from the glass. Several more minutes of airing display wonderful nuances of orange zest and delicate floral characters. On the palate, the wine is zesty and full of energy repeating the aromatic themes of lemon grass and lemon verbena along with underlying tropical fruit richness. The finish is full flavored and balanced ending with juicy, mouthwatering acidity.
