Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild petrol and grapefruit like bouquet with hints of cut grass. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant ripe pink grapefruit with notes of minerality, nectarine, and lime. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a while. The panel suggested serving this tasty Sauvignon Blanc with grilled swordfish skewers or mussels with garlic and white wine broth. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: A vibrant mix of nectarines, yellow peaches and cassis combines with the bright fragrance of lemon zest laced with musky, jasmine-like floral nuances. The palate is packed with ripe stone fruit, melons and mandarin creating a succulent tropical-fruited style with that classic Marlborough zing.
