Star bright straw hue with expressive aromas of lemongrass, key limes and gooseberries, in focus flavors of the same with a hint of lemon, leading to a long, clean finish. A good value wine with racy acidity for anything that you squeeze a lemon on.

Crisp and clean, this simple sauvignon has the freshness of a spritz of lemon, a brisk white for lemon sole.
You're going into a frame of mind, where the place is here and the time is now,traveling into a dimension where a medley of grapefruit and lemon grass flavors sing and dance on the palate, transmitting a crescendo of tantalizing impulses to the senses, seeking only to satisfy the primal passion that connects us all to each other. An area known only to those who dare to enter the "Winelight Zone." Try it with your favorite sushi. (Thanks, Rod!)
Classic aromas of grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest and lemongrass jump out of the glass and proudly proclaim the wine's varietal character. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish is persistent with great length of flavor. Perfect as an apéritif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.
A vibrant style of Sauvignon Blanc showing distinct varietal character. The nose displays classic gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon rind and grassy characteristics. The vastness of characters reflects the diversity of vineyard locations selected in blending this wine. A beautifully balanced palate finishes with clean, crisp acidity and a lingering aftertaste.
Bright and tangy, with a strong, pungent herb and grassy side. The combination of a lean body, crisp acidity and intense flavors creates a very refreshing wine. Drink now.
This direct white shows a definite grassy edge, with lemon-lime, grapefruit and green apple flavors that are fresh and nicely juicy. Drink now.
Dry and crisp in acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc shows pineapple and lime flavors, with a strong hit of gooseberry. May be too green for some, but it gets those tastebuds whistling.
Blocks were harvested in the cool, early morning and fermented separately in order to maximize Clone and varietal character. A slow, cool fermentation and the use of multiple yeast strains coaxed the more complex aromatics from the fruit while building elegant mouthfeel and texture. No malolactic fermentation was employed.
The 2010 vintage was distinguished by an exceptionally cool growing season which favored the development of the coveted ‘ripe green’ character in our fruit. Aromas and flavors of gooseberry, green fig, lemongrass, snap pea, chive, honeydew melon and lime abound and interplay with passionfruit and mineral notes. The lively acidity makes this an ideal summer aperitif and a delightful partner to oysters, shellfish, scallops and avocado, as well as a brilliant partner to spicy cuisine.
