Very good Napa sauvignon blanc, well worth the price. Nicely balanced, not too citrusy or tart but just enough tang with lemon and green apple. Read more

Winemakers Notes - This wine was fermented exclusively in stainless steel to achieve a lively expression of Sauvignon Blanc, highlighting grapefruit, kiwi, kaffir lime, lemon zest and fresh-cut grass aromas. The palate is bright and balanced, and the flavors echo the aromas, with additional notes of pineapple, gooseberry and minerals leading to a full, refreshing finish. This enticing Sauvignon Blanc offers a beautiful combination of freshness and complexity, with aromas of pineapple, guava, and lemon zest. The addition of Sémillon highlights the wine's tropical notes, with nuances of subtle oak.

This is a delightfully crisp, drily balanced Sauvignon Blanc that's perfect as a cocktail sipper with little appetizers. Made without any oak influence, it shows the variety's grapefruit, Meyer lemon, lime and grassy side, along with zesty acidity.

As fat and succulent as this wine may be, with ripe pineapple, fresh apple and leesy tannin, the structure keeps it discreet and lasting. It finishes with a gentle touch, substantial enough to match an albacore tuna.

Crisp and refreshing, a well-balanced blend of mouthwatering, citrusy lemon-lime flavors, offering touches of flowers and freshly cut grass, with a honeydew melon note on the finish. Drink now.
