Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with an attractive and fragrant grapefruit and gooseberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a very pleasant grapefruit and lime blend. The finish is dry and very refreshing. I really enjoyed this wine. It would pair very well with lemon drizzled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: "We are always looking for Sauvignon Blanc flavors that are unique, true to the variety, pleasant and intriguing. Sauvignon Blanc grown in specific terroirs can sometimes display very strong "Sauvignon" aromatics. These include boxwood or juniper, guava, fig, grapefruit and pineapple. We wanted to find fruit that added hints of all these, but a little more of the boxwood, gooseberries and light grassy character that is often associated with very cool climate, southern hemisphere Sauvignon Blancs. This Grand Reserve has all these aromatics including a distinctive note that asks to be evaluated over and over in the glass." — Randy Ullom, Winemaster
