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

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.
