Wine Review: This brilliant and almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Matanzas Creek opens with a fragrant white grapefruit and lime bouquet with hints of pineapple, limestone and Granny Smith apple. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, nicely balanced and delicate. The flavor profile is a mild gooseberry and flinty mineral blend with notes of lime. We also detected hints of white grapefruit, pineapple and a touch of peach pit towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors are pleasantly prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this very good Sauvignon Blanc with fried scallops or grilled swordfish. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Captivating aromas of pink grapefruit, honeydew melon, kiwi, Asian pear, white nectarines, and fresh pineapple. Juicy, with great density, this wine offers a good balance between acidity, density and residual sugar with a crisp, lasting finish.
