Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Rombauer opens with a fragrant gooseberry bouquet with hints of yellow grapefruit and lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little bit round. The flavor profile is gooseberry with notes of mild minerality and yellow grapefruit. I also detected a touch faint apricot pit towards the very end. The finish is dry and refreshing. In a blind tasting, this could easily be mistaken for a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Those that like that style will truly enjoy it. Pair this with swordfish off the grill. Cheers – 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.
