Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Merry Edwards opens with a very faint banana and delicate cantaloupe bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and rich for a Sauvignon Blanc. The flavor profile is a mild vanilla and cream soda blend with a hint of lime, melon, and honey. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is versatile and very food friendly. The Panel suggested pairing it with grilled swordfish or seared scallops. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our style of Sauvignon Blanc is designed to bring out the best in this regal varietal. It’s highly floral, effusing scents of hibiscus, honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom. Notes of muskmelon, mango, papaya and guava widen the aroma, along with accents of white peach, nectarine and Meyer lemon. Hints of minerality, creme brulee and toasted hazelnuts add even more sophistication. In the mouth, this wine is lush with good viscosity. This richness is balanced by sweet Ruby Red grapefruit, tangerine zest and lively acidity throughout. Our Sauvignon Blanc ages along with the best of those from Sancerre.

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.
