Wine Review: This sturdy Sauvignon Blanc is a pale straw color and has a bouquet that starts with white peach, then transitions to ruby grapefruit, orange blossom, wet gravel and melon. It is medium bodied and has bright high acidity with a lush texture on the palate. There are firm tropical flavors of pineapple and grapefruit, with notes of passionfruit and minerality. The finish is nice and long with a hint of warm vanilla. Pair this very good Sauvignon Blanc with pan-seared diver scallops. - Mark

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, passionfruit, melon and candied lemon. On the palate, flavors of lemon curd, guava, tangerines and nectarine come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish. Stainless steel fermentation was supplemented with small amounts of chestnut, acacia and French oak barrels adding additional character and nuance to this delicious wine.
