Pale green edges with a bright citrus bouquet and juicy tropical aromas. Lime, grapefruit, pineapple and pear flavors are vibrant and fresh. Smooth mineral notes and a hint of herbs creates complexity for this crisp and delightful wine, followed by an elegant finish.

Sweet peach, lemon verbena and asparagus greet the nose. Made in a fairly tart and lean style, this kicks off with a bright jab of acid that is quickly covered by the core of moderately rich and round fruit. Not particularly complex, this reveals subtle green citrus, grapefruit, and under-ripe melon flavors on the palate that lead to a pithy, refreshing, and modest finish. 84pts

A bit subtle but nicely complex with dried herb, citrus and slightly nutty aromas. Rather easy going on entry, perhaps deceptively so, this does show a fine acidic spine and easy drinking medium weight on the palate with restrained and slightly creamy texture that shows a nice base of orange and candied pineapple fruit with almost a gingery cast to it. The finish is very clean but short as well. 86pts

Winemaker Notes - Concentrated aromas with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Great acidity with fresh lime and grapefruit balanced by soft minerality on the palate. Bright and crisp with rich fruit expression, and an elegant finish. Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely food-friendly wine that pairs beautifully with fresh cheeses, seafood, grilled pork, or fresh lime chicken tacos. A lively match with spicy, crunchy Asian dishes, or spinach, almond and mandarin salad.

Restaurant Wine ReviewMedium full bodied, aromatic, dry, and long on palate, with aromas/flavors reminiscent of grapefruit, lemon grass, mint and green apple.Wine Tasting NotesPale green in color with citrus and tropical aromas of grapefruit, lime pineapple and pear. Elegant floral and mineral notes complement the delicate body which is finely balanced by crisp acidity, natural sugars and a ripe, clean finish. Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an exceptionally versatile wine that pairs perfectly with chicken Caesar salad, grilled fish, seafood and creamy pasta sauces.
