Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit and gooseberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, zesty and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused yellow grapefruit with notes of almond and a touch of peach pit and chamomile tea. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity show very nice length. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This delicious wine incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musque and Sauvignon Gris which adds a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents tropical aromas of pineapple, passion fruit, melon and orange liqueur. On the palate, flavors of lemon curd, guava, tangerines and mineral notes come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish.
