Honig is a nice lite crisp, dry, flinty, clean refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. This is a great white wine to go with fish or any seafood and chicken. Can't beat the price =)

Perfectly balanced grapefruit and melon aromas and flavors are accented by lime and mango. A round mid-palate is followed by a vibrant, crisp, lingering finish.

Consistently one of the finest Sauvignons made in California, Honig's 2008 (30,000 cases produced) is a blend of 99% Sauvignon Blanc and 1% Semillon from prime Napa Valley real estate. It exhibits crisp fig and melon notes intermixed with hints of beeswax and crushed rocks. Drink this medium-bodied, stylish, attractive white over the next year.

I have been a fan of this winery for quite some time now, and have always enjoyed Napa Sauvignons, so the the '09 from Honig is no surprise. Appealing aromas of lime and honeysuckle with a gentle thread of minerality. Nice fruit in the beginning that leads to a big, fat mid-palate. Honig has been practicing sustainable farming for years now, which gives me greater pleasure in popping the cork, and of course, recycling the bottle. Try this wine with soft-shell crab or oysters on the half shell.

Fragrant, with perfumed notes to the pea blossom, passion fruit and gooseberry flavors, which are lively and spicy, with good intensity and an almond skin finish. Drink now.

Light on its feet, with tangy lemon, grass, peach and honeysuckle flavors, framed by a hint of vanilla and grapefruit on the finish.

This brash beauty has it all - complex melon, fig, and citrus flavors, an integrated, creamy texture, and a stylish splash of grassiness to remind you that it's a Sauvignon.
