Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Ferrari Carano is a very good value wine. It opens with a gooseberry bouquet with hints of apricot pit and yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, with zesty plus acidity. The flavor profile is a yellow grapefruit with hints of lemon verbena, minerality and Honeydew melon mixed in. The finish is dry and refreshing. It will be popular this summer on a very hot beach or pool day. Pair it with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of pineapple, pink grapefruit, lemongrass, lychee, peach, pear, honeydew melon, orange blossom, guava and a touch of minerality. The Fume Blanc has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth. This wine pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes.
