Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a grapefruit and chervil bouquet with hints of saline and cut grass. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and juicy. The flavor profile is a chalky minerality, gooseberry, and gentle lime blend with notes of saline and honeydew melon. I also detected hints of lemon verbena and faint white grapefruit. The finish is dry and its refreshing flavors and acidity drift away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly and would pair nicely with a grilled swordfish kebabs. Enjoy – Ken, Stuart & Karen

Winemaker Notes: Guided by the idea that "less is more," this wine is dry and fresh, with crisp fruit flavors and bright minerality. It displays a color of golden silk. It offers scents of barely ripened nectarine and honeydew, layered with citrus blossom and a savory Meyer-lemon scone. A mineral character distinguishes the `nose, which evokes the freshness of an early-morning mist. Entry is light and lean, then the palate brightens and expands as the flavor if juicy lemon emerges but never overpowers. Vibrant acidity carries through to the finish, which brings a refreshing crispness and the lingering impression of wet stone.
