Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Galerie opens with a delicate grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lemon, lychee and grass. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild grapefruit with notes of lemon-lime and gentle minerality. There was also a touch of clover honey towards the end. The finish is dry and lingers for a while. The Panel suggested pairing this very good Sauvignon Blanc with chicken piccata. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale yellow, the 2015 Equitem shows notes of grapefruit, lime, ripe pineapple and wet grass. Very complex with nuances of minerality. Beautiful and bright, presenting a fresh palate

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





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.
