Wine Review: This yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild banana and bread dough like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly viscous with mild acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty complex blend of pear and green apple with a touch of lemon mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its flavors continue to linger well after it's gone. This is a Sauvignon Blanc that would appeal to Chard drinkers. Pair it with chicken, penne, in an Alfredo sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This year's Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive for its aromatics of lemon curd, honeydew and lime blossom, all of which contribute to freshness in the palate. The minerality, bright fruit, fine texture and length create mouth-watering, lingering flavors.
