Wine Review: Merry Edward's Sauvignon Blanc always seems to finish near the top of our big blind tasting. This year was no exception. The 2014 is pale straw colored and opens with a fragrant mild pineapple and ripe pear bouquet with hints of melon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon and gentle grapefruit blend with hints of minerality, melon and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. The panel thought this very nice Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with seared sea bass with sauteed Brussel sprouts or fig and blue cheese-stuffed pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This vibrant wine greets us with the delicate fragrance of jasmine, honeysuckle and cherry blossoms, along with blood orange and lime zest. Ripe white peach, nectarine, Pink Lady apple and Asian pear add intriguing dimensions. Toasted brioche, hazelnut and hibiscus tea further expand its elegant nature. The palate is a heightened reflection of aroma, bursting with more citrus and stone fruits and showing a bit of the wet-stone minerality that will develop with time. The long, layered finish follows through with just a hint of sweet pink grapefruit.
