Wine Review: This light white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a musty grapefruit and green pepper bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a tart yellow grapefruit with notes of green pepper and minerality. I also detected hints of lime and nectarine in the background. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a good value beach wine for the summer. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: DMZ is DeMorgenzon's value label, where the objective is to produce classic, elegant, well-balanced wines which over-deliver in terms of quality for price. Forthright aromas of passion fruit and citrus greet the nose following through to a lush palate of ripe fruit flavors with a nettle edge. An invigorating acidity and a stony minerality impart natural freshness and length.

Your comments on this wine:

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.
