Wine Review: This organic pale yellow colored wine opens with a fragrant gooseberry and grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and zippy with very ripe grapefruit flavors. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. This wine will appeal to New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc fans. It would be a perfect pool wine to enjoy with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: In general, wines from older vines taste better. Their deeper roots seek out the minerals the vines need and are better able to withstand changes in temperature and soil moisture. Sauvignon blanc is the fascinating exception to this rule, producing intense flavors from the very first harvest. This year we added a new block of Sauvignon blanc to our blend. This block is located in one of the coldest spots of the ranch, right next to our Chardonnay. This little parcel produced a fresh, crisp mineral wine, which when combined with the more opulent, luscious Sauvignon blanc from our slightly older, slightly warmer block produced an extraordinary blend.
