Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very fragrant gooseberry bouquet with hints of lime and grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, rather acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a ripe grapefruit and minerality blend with notes of lime and nectarine. The finish is dry and brief. This Sauvignon Blanc would be best served cool on a hot summer day. Enjoy it with spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Tropical aromas dominate the bouquet of this pale gold Sauvignon Blanc. Grapefruit, guava, passionfruit and lemongrass flow across the palate in perfect harmony with a refreshing, crisp acidity.

Organic status: not organic

Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
