Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a grapefruit pith and cat pee bouquet with hints of tarragon and lemon zest. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. It is also juicy. The flavor profile is white peach and Meyer lemon blend with notes of tangy pink grapefruit and hints of ginger ale. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite some time. The Panel would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with deep-fried scallops, fried calamari, or grilled chicken with lemon, tarragon & thyme. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc showcases aromas of Meyer lemon zest, peach blossom, and stone fruit. The citrus and vanilla bean notes carry through to the palate, where the vibrant acidity is balanced by a rounded mouthfeel and a white peach finish. This is the first year that Winemaker Laura Díaz Muñoz used a combination of concrete egg, new French oak and stainless steel for the fermentation and aging of the Sauvignon Blanc at Ehlers Estate. The result is outstanding and complex.
