Wine Review: This translucent and very pale white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc also has a green tinge. It opens with a lemon-lime bouquet with hints of grapefruit and honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and fresh. The flavor profile is a gentle lime and chalky minerality blend with notes of honeydew melon. I also detected some hints of saline and white grapefruit. The finish is dry and its fade away nicely. This crowd-pleasing Sauvignon Blanc was well-liked by all that tried it. It paired well with my grilled rainbow trout. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: “I’m going after a subtle wine that is more minerality-driven than fruit driven In my view, with Sauvignon Blanc, less is more.” - Jenny Wagner, owner & winemaker Nose: Dry and crisp, with notes of barely ripened melon, honeysuckle, flower blossom and the scent of fresh rain.
Palate: A zing of acidity on entry, then rounds out with flavors of honeydew carried over from the nose. A mouthwatering finish that calls you back for another sip.
Style differentiator: The wine is not overly ripe, it is also not herbaceous. Features low alcohol and vibrant acidity.
Food pairings from winemaker Jenny Wagner: Salads, grilled fish or Jenny also enjoys this wine on its own.
