Wine Review: This straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Freemark Abbey opens with a mild and attractive Honeydew melon bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its fruit and acidity. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild ripe Honeydew melon with notes of gentle minerality and faint pineapple. I also detected a hint of lemon verbena mixed in as well. The finish is pleasant and smooth as it drifts away nicely. I would pair this food friendly Sauvignon Blanc with pan-seared grouper with a key lime butter sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This brilliant green-straw colored wine is brimming with tropical freshness. The aroma is reminiscent of citrus fruits accompanied by notes of honeydew melon, white peach, green apple, kiwi and a hint of lemongrass. Flavors of citrus, melon and green apple mingle in perfect harmony. This wine has balanced fruit and brightness, refreshing acidity and a long, clean finish.
