Wine Review: This white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc from the Alexander Valley opens with a fragrant honeydew melon and yellow grapefruit bouquet with a hint of herbs. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, juicy and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tangy yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality, peach pit and a hint of honeydew melon and lime. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly and would pair well with swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Enticing floral and white fruit notes with bursting, vibrant aromas of prickly pear, lime, pumelo, and fresh mango. Flavor notes of lemon blossom, ginger white tea, fresh lemon verbena and a long finish with saline and minerality.
