Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Matetic opens with a very tropical bouquet featuring papaya, mango, and a touch of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly crisp, fresh and pleasantly acidic. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused gentle grapefruit with hints of lime. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity leave you feeling very refreshed. This is a perfect summer option. It would pair perfectly with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A very pale yellow colored wine with a green tint. In nose, a complex and delicate mixture of mature tropical fruits, such as mango and lychee, as well as custard apple, papaya and lime peel intertwined with herbs and critic flower notes. In mouth it is a concentrated, fruity, fresh and very tasty wine, with a persistent mineral aspect finish in mouth. This wine is suggested to be enjoyed as an aperitif or with raw seafood, specially oysters, fresh salads, fish prepared as sushi or cooked in light sauces.

Organic status: organic
