Wine Review: This straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant grapefruit, cantaloupe and papaya like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp, lively and displays mouthwatering acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral infused ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger long after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine displays a wonderfully refreshing tropical fruit nose that is indicative of the near perfect harvest conditions we experienced in 2012. Notes of honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and mango leap from the glass. Several more minutes of swirling reveal a sense of depth and vibrancy in the wine with mineral and citrus elements shining through. On the palate, the wine is effusive with an invigorating style that expresses fresh lemon-lime, kiwi, and grapefruit characters. All of this is balanced by the fleshy texture from the Sauvignon Musque clonal selection. A beautiful and sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc, this is Dry Creek Valley terroir at its finest.
