Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant gooseberry and grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tart grapefruit with notes of minerality and a hint of lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc is a classic New Zealand style. I would pair it pair it with seared scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Screams out of the glass, with super fresh aromas of ocean breeze, lime leaf, and tropical fruit. Succulent, juicy citrus and passion fruit flavors on the palate, with a hint of minerality and an electric finish. An absolutely fabulous refresher and sipper that's perfect for pairing with creamy pasta, seafood, or our personal favorite: our CHW exclusive fish tacos recipe.

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.
