Wine Review: This white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a gooseberry bouquet with notes of yellow grapefruit and peach pit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and quite lively. The flavor profile is ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality, lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Sauvignon Blanc will be a crowd pleaser at your holiday parties. Great for the beach next summer as well. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Layers of passionfruit and pink grapefruit with hints of tropical fruit, melon, and fresh herb. Rich and mouthfilling. Laden with tropical fruit and citrus impressively structured by juicy acidity. Delicious with seafood (salmon, mussels, oysters, sashimi) and poultry (quail, free-range chicken).

Organic status: not organic
