Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a pear bouquet with a hint of lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and shows smoothness with no edges. The flavor is a mild tart green apple with notes of minerality. The finish is dry and its mineral notes linger nicely. This food friendly Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with broiled bay scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 vintage also contains 3% Riesling from our Lafond Vineyard, which adds a tropical fruit accent. Roughly 40% of the fruit comes from vines in excess of 36 years old, lending depth and concentration. Bruce barrel fermented 20% of the juice in oak puncheons to give texture to the lean character of this wine without compromising the racy acids naturally found in Sauvignon Blanc. Our Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect wine to pair with light or spicy foods found in Thai cuisine. It is also a great match for many seafood preparations and salads.
