Review date: June 24, 2015

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.

Organic status: not organic

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
