Food Pairings for Washington Hills Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon blanc is a popular grape all over France but is the signature white from the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley. Its typical aromas are of melon and mineral, and this sauvignon blanc, though from Washington state, is no exception. It has a remarkable bouquet: pear, gooseberry, melon, fresh grass, and finishes with a distinct minerality that really grabs your attention. On the palate, it remains true to its Old World roots as well, with flavors of green apple, a touch of white grapefruit, and an incredibly balanced and clean mouth feel all the way through the finish. Not too sweet, not too tart, this wine will pair perfectly with shellfish dipped in melted butter, or any seafood or rich chicken dish for that matter. Washington Hills has been garnering a reputation recently for producing exceptional value wines, and this sauvignon blanc is a great example.
