Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with an green apple and ginger bouquet with notes of gooseberry. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, and round. The flavor profile is a lime and gentle gooseberry blend with notes of faint stony minerality. We also detected hints of ginger and Granny Smith apple peel in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and its peasant gentle acidity and flavors faded away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is a real summer quaffer. You could drink a lot on a hot summer day. The Panel would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with a salad with pan-seared scallops or with steamers. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our elegant and refined Sauvignon Blanc incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musqué and Sauvignon Gris, which adds a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents tropical aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, white peach and jasmine. On the palate, flavors of grapefruit, passionfruit, guava and white pepper 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.
