Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with an awkward green pepper and gooseberry bouquet. But once that blows off this wine is treat. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, round, delicate and nicely balances its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a subtle grapefruit and gentle minerality blend with notes of lime and a touch of honeydew melon. The finish is dry and it fades away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is smooth and food friendly. Decant or swirl it to blow of the initial aroma and serve it with grilled swordfish steaks. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Kelleher "Block 21" Sauvignon Blanc is our 8th release from the highly regarded, dry farmed vineyard in St. Helena. Aromas of pear, guava and citrus are balanced by a touch of stone fruit. The palate boasts flavors of melons, figs and peaches and is a moderately full-bodied and carefully balanced wine.
