Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Decoy opens with a mild wet stone and honeydew melon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly acidic and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of lemon verbena and a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is very food friendly. It would make be a very nice glass pour option and would pair well with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This inviting wine combines bright citrus aromas with richer layers of kiwi and honeysuckle. On the palate, a perfectly balanced mouthfeel underscores pure flavors of Key lime, orange zest and Honeycrisp apple, all of which carry through to a long and lively finish.
