Wine Review: This straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a gooseberry and yellow grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a gooseberry and green apple blend with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected a hint of yellow grapefruit. The finish is off-dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: This delicious wine incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musque and Sauvignon Gris which adds a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents aromas of honeydew melon, ripe pear and some floral notes. On the palate, flavors of Meyer lemons, tangerines and mineral notes come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish. Stainless steel fermentation was supplemented with small amounts of chestnut, acacia and French oak barrels adding additional character and nuance to this delicious wine. Seamless from start to finish, this is an elegant and refined Sauvignon Blanc.
