Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant grapefruit and gooseberry bouquet with a hint of stone fruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly viscous with some elevated acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced tart yellow grapefruit with notes of lemon zest with a hint of peach pit. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would serve this slightly chilled on a hot summer day with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is brilliant pale yellow with a bright green hue. It exudes aromas of key lime, mango, papaya and white nectarine with a hint of fresh-cut grass. The palate is fresh and enticing, as grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit intertwine with Meyer lemon and lime, making the mouth water. Balanced yet lively acidity lingers on the palate inviting another taste. Boxwood on the finish gives the wine length and vibrant freshness. Pair this wine with oysters on the half-shell.
