Wine Review: This pale yellow Sauvignon Blanc opens with a pear and wet stone bouquet with a hint of lime and white pepper. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, round and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild lime and green apple blend with pleasant mineral notes throughout. I also detected a little Anjou pear and a dash of white pepper. The finish is quite dry and very lingers for a while after the wine is gone. This wine was made for grilled swordfish with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Translucent, pale straw. An intensely perfumed fresh bouquet of bright pink grapefruit and passion fruit combined with tropical notes of pineapple guava. Emulating the nose, the palate of bright grapefruit and lime flavor carries a hint of dry oregano and white peach accompanied by a soft, round mouth feel resulting in a medium bodied, fresh food-friendly wine.
