Wine Review: This straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc which mainly is sourced from the Gamble Ranch in Oakville is very good. It opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit bouquet with hints of mango and apricot. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with pleasant acidity. The flavor profile is tasty mild tart grapefruit with notes of integrated minerality, herbs and apricot pit. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair very nicely with a seared swordfish with a lime and herb butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This inaugural 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is lively, expressive and vibrant, exhibiting the variety's classic citrus fruit, lemongrass and white floral nuances. Backed up by a lean focused line of acidity and a steely minerality that adds to the wine's crispness and complexity. There is a depth of flavor with candied lemon peel, passion fruit and melon, alongside hints of white floral jasmine and white pepper that linger on the palate of the lengthy finish. Enjoy on its own or pair with a wide variety of your favorite seafood, chicken or Mediterranean dishes.
