Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine opens with and attractive mild apricot and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly crisp. The flavor profile is a tangy lime and grapefruit. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine would pair well with grilled swordfish drizzled with lemon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc seamlessly combines lush, mouth-filling fruit with refreshing acidity. The aromas highlight bright citrus notes of lemon zest, grapefruit and kaffir lime, underscored by subtle hints of pear and dried apricot. Echoing the aromatics, the palate reveals vibrant citrus layers complemented by more subdued tropical elements of banana, coconut and lychee.
