Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant grapefruit and mild petrol bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tart yellow grapefruit with notes of lemon-lime. I also detected a hint of tangerine as well. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2018 is rich and powerful, built on a backbone of great acidity. The nose jumps out of the glass with vibrant Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit, white peach, pears, and nectarines. The mouth is taut yet nicely textured, with creamy guava, lemon curd, and a wonderful blend of fruitiness, wet stone minerality, and a structure that persists in a very long and salivating finish. This Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed both now and into the future.
