Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Santa Barbara opens with a light lime and grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine displays pleasant medium acidity and is mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a lime and pineapple blend with notes of integrated minerality and with a hint of kiwi. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. The Tasting Panel suggested enjoying this Sauvignon Blanc on its own, poolside this summer. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: 86% of this wine is from the Musque Clone of Sauvignon Blanc. The addition of a small amount of Riesling from the Lafond Vineyards adds to the floral aromatics of the Musque Clone. Citrus and notes of tangerine and lime layered with tropical mango and honeydew melon. This fresh-tasting wine has its own distinctive flavor. Serve it with moderately spicy foods, seafood and salads.
