Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild yellow grapefruit with a hint of pear. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and very smooth for a Sauvignon Blanc. The flavor profile is a gentle grapefruit and green apple blend with hints of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is very food friendly and would pair well with grilled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The next chapter in the Galerie collection brings the second Sauvignon Blanc, Equitem. Latin for "knight", the name comes from our vineyard, situated in the Knights Valley. Equitem is distinctly different from its Napa Valley sister wine, Naissance, displaying the intense minerality, vivacious acidity, and long citrus finish. The debut vintage of Equitem displays intense notes of guava, white peach and Asian pear. The wine expresses slate tones with a strong minerality, characteristic of its terroir. On the palate, it denotes great natural acidity, with an extended citrus finish.
