Bursting with ripe tropical flavors, lush and fruity. Therersquo;s just a hint of green herb mdash; enough so that you know itrsquo;s Sauvignon Blanc mdash; but the emphasis here is on forward fruit. Finishes with crisp acids and more and more fruit.

Perfumed aromas of lime, tarragon and pepper. juicy, lean and hard-edged, with bracing flavors of lime zest, citrus oil and mint. Finishes dry and bracing, with a note of grapefruit skin.

Fresh and lively, with a talcum powder edge to the citrus flavors. Drink now.
