Wine Review: This white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with an Anjou pear bouquet with hints of pineapple and grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Anjou pear with hints of mild grapefruit. I also detected hints of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc seemed to exhibit a certain urgency to develop flavor and physiological ripeness as soon as possible. The result seems to be all the bright and balanced flavors found normally in a Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc, but with more weight and depth across the palate. We always think of food when we think of Sauvignon Blanc but particularly this year, I’m thinking I may just enjoy a glass all on its own!
