Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Merry Edwards is very good and unique. It opens with a mild Bosc pear and nectarine bouquet with hints of Juicy Fruit gum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty pear and almond blend with notes mild minerality. We also detected hints of caramel and pineapple. The finish is off-dry and lingers nicely. The Panel thought this Sauvignon Blanc was food friendly. We suggested pairing it with trout almandine and Emeril's crab cakes. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The bright, shimmering, green-gold hue of this Sauvignon Blanc is a visual overture to a striking personality. Its enticing aroma is highly perfumed with honeysuckle, citrus blossom, white rose and gardenia. Honeydew melon, nectarine, ripe Rainier cherry, tangerine, Kaffir lime and summer hay add complexity, along with hints of sweet oak and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, vibrant acidity is finely balanced with a rich, creamy mouthfeel creating a unique textural experience, reminiscent of a refreshing blood orange sorbet. The finish is broad and lingers with sweet pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest.
