Westerly Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2006
Quite melon-y on the nose, with some tropical fruit and lime notes as well. Rich but lively on the palate, with citrus as well as tropical fruit and some melon flavors. Bright acidity leads to a long, clean finish. Reminiscent, in some aspects, of both New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Loire Valley Sancerre.
