Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Justin opens with a tropical bouquet featuring pineapple and yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and round. The flavor profile is a tasty yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of tangerine and peach pit. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Very bright, light straw with silver highlights. Aroma: Fresh lemon, white peach, guava, pineapple, white flower and herbal notes, and a little white pepper. Palate: Dry, refreshing throughout, with lemon, green apple, peach and tropical fruit on the entry leading to a crisp, textured mid-palate showing chamomile flower, subtle green herbs and mineral notes. The finish is clean, bright and textured with lingering citrus and herbal character. A perfect refreshing and crisp aperitif wine particularly in the summer months, it will pair beautifully with an apple and goat cheese salad, fresh oysters, or fish tacos with a squeeze of lime.

Organic status: not organic
