Wine Review: This white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant gooseberry and yellow grapefruit bouquet with hints of nectarine pit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic, balanced and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty yellow grapefruit and lemon-lime blend with notes of chalky minerality, gooseberry and saline. The finish is dry and refreshing. It was liked by all that tried it. I would pair this very good Sauvignon Blanc with a grilled swordfish steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc jumps out of the glass with pink grapefruit, Asian pear, white peach, lemon oil, lime leaf, and lemongrass aromatics. The palate confirms the nose and is extremely bright and tense, showing great balance. Bright guava, juicy stone fruit, and hints of pineapple pair with a grapefruit acidity that lead to a long finish. Frequent lees bâtonnage adds a level of creaminess and more layers of complexity. Showing beautifully now, this wine also has the structure and sophistication to age gracefully for enjoyment in the future.
