Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Saint Clair is impressive. It opens with a very fragrant ripe yellow grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and shows nice acidity. The flavor profile is ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality and nectarine with a hint of lime. The finish is dry and its pleasant fruit flavors and acidity linger nicely after the wine is gone. This Sauvignon Blanc is perfect to sip poolside. I would serve it with broiled scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Pale straw with a slight green hue. Aroma: A powerful bouquet of ripe grapefruit, passionfruit and blackcurrant. Palate: A lovely rich, mouth-watering salty palate with passionfruit, citrus and a hint of white currant which lingers on the senses. Cellaring: Drinking beautifully now and will be best enjoyed over the next two years. Food Match: Perfect on its own or well matched with salmon, mussels, or fresh vegetable dishes.
