Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc from Paso opens with a mild green apple bouquet with a hint of yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused grapefruit with notes of white pepper and gooseberry and a hint of peach pit towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely for a little while. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Brilliant, light straw Aroma: Grapefruit and pear with hints of lemongrass Taste: A lively, refreshing wine; citrus flavors unfold into a quenching finish

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.
