Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild pear bouquet with a hint of green melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and very approachable. The flavor profile is a pleasant Anjou pear with notes of green apple. I also detected hints of white pepper, lemon and a kiss of minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with grilled lemon chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Luscious honeysuckle, ripe pear and fresh lemon grass intertwine in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of fresh lime complements the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine. - Randy Ullom, Winemaster
